Bedazzled. And All it Took Was One Man, Some Rocks and Gravity.

Bedazzled.
I like that word.
I've never used it much; in fact, I've never used it before in my entire life, however I've learned and seen some things in the past couple of weeks that demand nothing short of a word such as this to describe the impact they've had on me.

They say amazing things come in threes, or something like that. Perhaps it's bad things usually come in threes. Well, this time the three things were nothing short of amazing.

The first is to do with 'gravity'.  Yes, plain old gravity. The stuff that keeps us firmly planted here on Terra Firma, can also be responsible for some pretty breathtaking works of beauty; some crafted by nature, some crafted by mankind.

This past week I came across a video and a Facebook page belonging to an amazing individual by the name of Michael Grab; who uses gravity to create bedazzling works of art made of rock. Watch the video below.
Be prepared to be inspired, renewed and humbled.
I know I certainly was and am and have become an avid follower of this unique and wonderful artist.


Coming up next: How nature and mankind have used rock, yes, rock again, to create another absolutely breathtaking thing of beauty.

Bedazzled. And All it Took Was One Man, Some Rocks and Gravity.  I love the title.  That guy "rocks" (pun intended).  Thanks for sharing this inspirational video.  It made my day!  Balance, focus, and stability ... this guy is amazing!

Hi John,

It seems like a form of meditation and I know from experience, meditation is one of the very hardest things to do.

Jo, not quite the same thing, but when I was in Aruba I'd come across stacked rocks...story is residents or visitors would stack rocks and make a wish.

Nick,

That's very interesting! Rocks have always intrigued me....in fact, I have giant pyramid shaped rock that I collected many years ago sitting in my living room right now and whenever I travel somewhere, I like to bring home a small rock.

Jo, I do the same thing...usually bring a rock back from somewhere I've been...I actually have a rock...well ok, maybe it's more like a piece of gravel...from when I was, "...standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona...".  Do you remember that song?

Nick,

That's wonderful! I've never heard of anyone, besides myself, bringing a rock home from their travels before. I wonder if there are many like us?

Yes, I remember that song....in fact, now that you've mentioned it, I have it playing in my head. I hope I don't fall asleep listening to it. (-:

It is absolutely fascinating how that works. Sometimes you just have to be in awe.
