Topic: geology et al
Now I'm reading about an area of Minnesota with which I have more affinity than the eastern part...northwestern Minnesota. The Red River Valley. It was once the bottom of Lake Agassiz. That must have been quite a lake. 600-700 feet deep in places. The Red River is quite young, having been formed soon after the last glacier retreated. Glacial activity has left several hundred feet of drift in places. Where it has been possible to drill down to bedrock, Cretaceous shale has been found on top of pre Cambrian granite, slate and schist. There are no outcroppings and I know that the area is very dry as far as rock hunting is concerned.
I had a customer at my real life rockshop today who purchased stones for healilng. This happens quite often. She bought a clear quartz crystal, two apache tears, and my last elestial.
The medication I take makes me drowzy so I didn't get my writing done yesterday.
Have to work at the church Friday I guess, and try to observe a writing class tomorrow if I am up to it.
