Thoughts. . .

Oolitic Limestone (look familiar?)
History/ Determining the past/Inferring the past
Identity/Identification
Time/Geologic Time
Weathering/Erosion = Passage of Time
Relationship of mineral grains indicates formation of rock
Relationship of chemical elements determines mineral type
Our (human) relationship to the earth? To time? To adorment? To the things we wear (dare I say fashion?!)
Collection. Collecting as means to identify/investigate
Collecting as human nature
Stability/Near permanent
The beginning of everything, the end of everything
More later. . . .
