Since I was two years old I have been a proud member the word’s most honoured and rarefied profession; that of Rock Collector.
When the United States of America decided to expand the horizons and capabilities of the human species it chose rock collectors to lead the way.
Don’t believe me?
Perhaps you’ll believe my fellow pilot and rock collector Neil Armstrong.
Here’s a photograph of Neil Armstrong doing what we do best; collecting rocks and looking cool doing it!
It is incredibly moving and sobering to know that when you are holding a rock in your hand you are holding something that has existed for billions of years before you were born and will exist for billions of years after you have gone.
When you hold a rock in your hand you are connecting yourself to both the past and the future.
Rocks are the silent historians.
