Instead of seeing the wrting on the walls, this is the writing on the rocks.
We will be together forever...One of the last of my painted rocks entries (see some other painted rock posts).
So when I first saw this rock and noticed the way it was written I thought that something happened to Meghan, maybe she died or was in a coma or something, but later when I was looking at the images I didn't think see it that way so much. But now as I'm writing this post I feel it again. Something about Meghan makes me feel like she's in the past tense (especially the last sentence), I get the idea that Meghan was never going to see this rock and it made me wonder why? What do you think when you read it?
As you all know I had that sad Avril song running through my head as I was climbing along (and I thought it was sad when she sang it at the concert). But that hasn't been as all-consuming in my brain lately.
Marry me?!?One of another from my painted rocks series from Evanston, IL. This one was a unique one in that in was a two part rock. One with a question and one with a Yes/No option to complete. It's a unique way to propose and I'm all for that. It was interesting because the rock looked old.
But take a look at the corner of the first photo, there's a date and I'd assume it's the date he asked. Obviously that's not the case, it's in the future (at least it was when I wrote this). Why would that be? If Maggie is busy that weekend it's a no go? It wasn't on the rock where she was to put her answer. Anyone going to a wedding in two weeks for Maggie?
So this seemed like an interesting story so I googled the 'net and the closest thing I found was at a prom dedication site. (Very strange.)
LATER: It bothered me that it was word for word when I found it on-line. So I googled it without Maggie's name and realized it's the chorus of a George Strait song (I believe written by Danny A. Wells/Dana Hunt Oglesby).
I still want to know about the wedding...
Just FriendsAnother painted rock from my trip to Illinois (click picture to enlarge). If you haven't seen them I've posted of few of these since the last weekend in June. It was really crazy how much I enjoyed walking along the shore reading these rocks. At least I've finally got that darn Avril song out of my head....
Love RocksAnother rock from my walk along Lake Michigan. I liked this one, but the squiggly heart didn't come out in any of the pictures that were of the whole rock so you don't really get the full effect. But I like the soda and pop comparison (I generally say soda), generally the only difference (in the U.S.) between soda and pop is a 1,000 miles. :)
The Morning LightSo here's another painted rock with a quote on it (click image to enlarge) that I saw down by Lake Michigan. As I was walking along all these rocks (which really means jumping precariously from rock to rock) I had the darn Avril song running through my head. It was really kinda sad as I'm reading these rocks with different inspiring and sad messages running through my head. There were some really great ones but they were too faded or just too difficult (lighting/angle/shadows) to get a photograph of.
It was an experience to see the beautiful peaceful water on one side and also be climbing all over the rocks and then pausing to read some of the writings or to see some of the pictures. And then that darn song which always makes me feel little was running through my head.
Painted RocksSo this is one of the many rocks that are piled up around Lake Michigan around the campus at Northwestern. There were tens of thousands of rocks and I'm sure there were thousands with writing on them. Many were too faded to photograph but I captured some of the ones that I really liked. I've got a few more of these that I'll be sharing with you later...
