Holy moly. It’s been awhile. Unfortunately, my blogging has fallen by the wayside lately due to a combination of other distractions and lack of inspiration. I used to constantly be struck with “I should blog about that!” ideas, but that well seems to have dried. The first step is admitting you have a problem – I’ll be better from now on.
Appropriately, it was the best collection of pretty rocks I’ve ever seen that snapped me out of my drought. These poor quality iPhone pics were snapped at the Perot Museum of Natural Science here in Dallas last weekend. It was our first trip to the much hyped about museum and we weren’t disappointed. While it was packed with well designed displays and an amazing amount of interactive material, my jaw hit the floor when I walked into the gems and minerals hall. Kid, welcome to the candy store. I gawked (and took pictures) in front of every single one of the dozens of display cases for a solid 10 minutes. Each. Luckily the family I was with shares a similar, if not quite as intense, interest in gems.
The size of this amethyst geode just can’t even be real. As demonstrated by my awestruck expression. The things I would do to take him home… Anyways, anyone in the Dallas area or planning to visit, be sure to add the Perot Museum to your to-do list, it won’t disappoint!
