Here’s something delightful that I came across completely by accident!
While out gathering data in Historic Dublin with a colleague, I wanted to show her the little fairy houses in the corner of the plaza at the Bridge St. and High St. intersection. While we were studying the cute little structures, I noticed something colorful. I pulled it out for this photo, but it was originally placed just under the tree to the left.
It’s an adorable painted rock! I had actually heard about The Kindness Rocks Project (“a grassroots kindness movement”) before, so I knew what it was right away.
Unfortunately, in my excitement, I forgot to take a photo of the design on the front. I found a little note on the back:
I checked out the Facebook group, and lo and behold, there’s a whole community of people here in Columbus who are painting and hiding rocks just for the purpose of spreading joy!
We took the rock and re-hid it at another location in Dublin. I hope it brings a smile to someone else’s face!
You can check out the Columbus Ohio Rocks! project on their Facebook group page, which has more information about how you can participate. As for me, I’ve been inspired… I think I’ll paint and hide some rocks of my own.
Have you found one of these rocks in Columbus? Have you ever hidden one of your own? Let me know in the comments!
