My rune stone for February is "Drift".
The idea of drifting is frequently considered to be negative in our society; we are expected to be focused and marching forward toward a goal. "Going with the flow" or allowing ourselves to be carried in directions by outside forces is thought to be a sign of weakness.
But drifting (in moderation) can be positive - we are transformed by our encounters with the random.
I have used a piece of driftwood, collected on the beach, as a cabochon. I've found myself using driftwood in my work frequently - it's quite light weight for it's size. I've even used driftwood as a both sides of a functional clasp. I'm currently working on a very large piece that will include a piece of wood 8 1/2 foot long!
Driftwood frequently shows strong grain lines and I used beads in several shades to show these lines.
My "Drift" runestone is still afloat in beaded water; on the very bottom, the stone can still be viewed.
Once in awhile, allow yourself some drift - be carried by outside forces and see where it takes you!
