I took a picture of these rocks.
You see, many years ago, my nephews realized that there were rocks in the creek behind their home. And they thought that they should gather them, paint them, and sell them.
As a sucker for anything remotely entrepreneurial, I thought this was wonderful, so I purchased one rock from each of them. This picture shows them.
These are not "just rocks." These represent the intelligence and ingenuity of two young boys who were (and still are) very dear to me.
Today they are young men.
One is a software engineer, having earned a Master's degree in just 4 years. The other is finishing his second year of college, where he spends most of his time in the music studio and on the Dean's list.
They have no memory of these rocks... but I do.
