Do you have a favorite beach? Or maybe a beach played a part of an important event to you.
It would be cool to take sand from a beach that is significant to you, and put it inside an hourglass.
People save sand in a little glass vile. But an hourglass makes the sand active. And speaks directly about time.
After doing a little research about sand and hourglasses, I found out that this is a thing for weddings. The bride and groom each pour a cup of sand into an hourglass. The sand in each cup is its own color. So the two colors end up mixing together. That’s kinda cool. Although I’d just want the sand to be from some specific location.
