On a recent walk, I discovered this cute painted rock sitting on a driftwood stump on the beach. It’s pretty hefty for a “pet rock” — maybe about 10″ long by 6″ high — so I could see it from quite a ways off. It made me smile. And I can think of no other reason someone would leave a simple, colourful, child-like bit of art on the beach other than to make people smile. So, mystery artist, mission accomplished!
This bit of found art got me thinking about leaving simple gifts for others as we journey through our days. A smile, a kindness, a listening ear, a compassionate word, a reassuring touch. Maybe even a little art on the beach. Such things nurture joy, hope, and healing, bringing a little more colour to a grey and weary world. Art at its finest.
