What's so special about a rock? Why do we have it?
This rock is special. It belonged to a 6 year old boy, who left his home country in 1923 with his father. Of all the things he might have brought with him across the ocean, we have this rock.
This rock belonged to my Grandfather, William Patrick Bellew. When he left England his mother and two brothers remained behind for a few years. When I hold it I imagine a young boy, with it in his pocket... this rather large rock from home. Boarding a huge ship for another country, and holding onto somthing to remember the place he came from. What surprises me more is that he kept it all his life and my Grandmother has passed it to my mom.
A young boy's "treasure", and now ours.
