Solid as a Rock

I love that even though a solid is a state of matter that has fixed shape and volume, its molecules don't sit still. They aren't fixed. They move around, do themselves some groovin'.

I slept well last night, for about eight hours. In those eight hours—those thousands of years—particles settled in layers, weight multiplied, fixed shape and volume compressed into being.

Today: solid rock … dancing a quiet little molecular dance.

  1. Zoomed way in, and got lost in the texture and crevices. Love the title too... sounds like a classic 70's song!

    1. Sheila, loved your comment. My painting experience was just that: zooming way in and getting lost in the texture and crevices. The title: stone(d) for rock, soul for what lies beneath the visible surface, picnic for those molecules having fun!
