Mundane Monday #35 – A Mazing

Pho Trablogger brings us another chance to look at what we may see everyday, and possibly take for granted, in a new way, and find the beauty in it.

I have had a few occasions to grab my camera, one of those times was to capture this unique rock.

 It has been in my family for as long as I can remember. I am thinking it was found on a beach, or something like that. I really love the intricate maze it produces.  We call it the brain rock.

    Funky. Really does look like a brain. Drollery says a beach is a good guess because it looks like some kind of sea coral. Cool!

    Is it really a rock? Maybe a carved rock? Or do you think it happened naturally?

    Lovely find. Is it a rock? If it is somewhat light in weight, then it could be a coral.

      Thank you. It is a rock. It’s quite hefty. If you click on the pic and look at it close up, you can see that it looks like it’s been made over quite a long time. It reminds me of fossils in a way.

    I have a piece – much smaller – with identical design picked up on a beach. I am told it is coral.

    I wonder if it is a fossil of coral. Where did it come from? So much of the earth used to be under water.

    Oh that would be SO cool; a fossil of coral! It has been in my life for as far back as I can remember. My parents probably found it on our many visits to the ocean. I only remember it being there, on the front porch, and now, here, by our front door, a kind of Guardian of the Realm.

      Wow! That’s so exciting to find someone else who’s come across such a beautiful rock! It’s the most amazing I’ve ever seen, and we still have it here with us, after 50 years. Thank you for stopping by and telling me about your own ‘find.’
