This pile resides on my kitchen window sill and the stones are very indigenous to this area. I picked up that striped rock on a hike when I was a teenager.
I have another pile on the table next to the bed that consists of a polished agate worry stone, a large piece of pyrite and a good sized chunk of mica. Technically, the pyrite and mica are minerals but the pile works.
I have no idea why I make these little cairns around my home, but they make me feel good to look at them. A bit spiritual, I suppose. I don't think that my little piles are Inukshuk because they do not resemble the human figure.
Kind of a "I am here" type of statement.
