|Awakening your Senses|
Tze and I have started our journey south since we left NYC less than a month ago. We decided to stop in Kentucky to see if we could find some crystals, which we heard were all over the state. For the first couple of days we looked at maps and read all about where the crystals could possibly be. After a few days of searching we still had not found any crystals . We decided we would head on out of Kentucky towards Tennessee. Right when we were about to leave the town of Danville we saw a pie stand out of nowhere appear on the side of this desolate back road. We decided to stop and get some pies. The whole experience was quite entertaining. We were greeted by this older couple. The man looked like a wizard with a long gray beard, and serious pie face.... His wife was very sweet and told us that she makes all the pies homemade and they had been living in Kentucky for 20 years, farming, and selling pies. We decided to try all of her little sweet precious pies: apple, cherry, blackberry, and peach. After chatting with the pie masters we started walking back towards our car. I noticed when I looked down I saw something sparkly and realized it was a small crystal. I screamed with excitement and knelt down on the ground to look around. Tze yelled back to me had found a small crystal too. We both looked at each other and knew...... We started walking along the side of the road looking all along the gravel, and creek.... The crystals started to appear everywhere. We stayed for a while gathering the ones we found. I was in disbelief of how these crystals were just on the side of the road. No digging, no caves, no climbing, just on the side of a gravel road. Here are a few pictures of our findings. We are so grateful to have found these beauties and this magical sunset awaiting us......
