I took this photo as is, never realized that there was red ribbon at the end. Did she intentionally tie it there? Is there any relationship between the two?
My late sister who we called Ditse, picked up stones where ever she went and we often wonder why.There was endless story behind each stone.
I did some research and this is what I found out:
"Stone has been, since prehistoric times, the principal material used to build and adorn important structures, where solidity and permanence are the paramount considerations. Stone became paradigmatic of stability, hardness and endurance in all languages, bearing a wealth of symbolic meaning, with many deep rooted psychological and historical associations and suggestions."
As a very superstitious and optimistic person that she was, I now understand why she loved collecting them.
