Or I should say,
Mrs. Padilly’s Souvenir Rocks.
I created these rocks for a very special trip we will be taking to an area of Texas I have only seen twice by train: Big Bend National Park. Or more accurately, Alpine, Texas.
Big Bend Country is the Texas you see depicted in movies such as the 1956 film, Giant ~ the Gone with the Wind version of Texas. This is dry, rugged country, and yes, there are lots of rocks.
The Rock Movement
Since I am so excited about this trip, I wanted to do something special to celebrate it. So I decided on rock art souvenirs.
Not long ago I heard about another rock movement called The Kindness Rocks Project. Through this project, members design rocks to spread random acts of kindness; rocks designed to provide a kind word, give encouragement, or simply put a smile on someone’s face.
Type in #thekindessrocksproject on Instagram, and you will see what I mean.
While I initially thought I might join in on kindness project, I later decided to make my rocks more of a “souvenir” from a Texan, to a traveler in Texas. I little Padilly art. A little Padilly welcome. A memento that I hope brings a smile and/or a laugh to the person who finds it.
