We would take one of his little socks and start off up the road, bending down often to collect the pebbles and small stones we liked the best. Eben often chose creamy white or oddly striated and marked stones.
Today, I still bend over and pick up stones like these whenever I happen across one; I keep them, in his memory, in a little vintage glass ashtray he once gave me. Photograph shot in November 2009.
