Rock Art For The Heart, Larry Martin

“Rock Art For The Heart” by Rock Balancing Artist, Larry Martin

Our winter sunset cover photo shot near Main Beach features the work of Rock Balancing Artist, Larry Martin. 
This is the third consecutive February we’ve featured his “Rock Art For The Heart” to symbolize the month of LOVE. 
At Cress St. Beach I witnessed Larry balance a heart-shaped rock and was amazed to watch him pinpoint the center of gravity aka “the sweet spot”. It’s a dance between him and the rock; an exercise in listening and patience. Seeing people’s reactions fills his heart and he’s only too happy to snap photos to capture the moment. 
Sometimes life throws a curve ball but like balancing rocks, it requires fortitude to overcome the challenges. 
Even when a wave came along and dragged his iPhone out to sea, he just rolled with it. It’s simple really, embrace the journey while you’re upright. Words to live by!
