2013.12.13, by Elisa Pepe This is a rock that reminded me of Eitan because of its maze pattern (he loved to draw mazes).

There is a Jewish tradition of leaving a rock behind when visiting a grave. Stones represent permanence.

Eitan left us all way too soon. I'm extending the rock-leaving tradition to the world. When you travel somewhere, leave a rock for Eitan. If you want, inscribe his name on it (with a pencil, a sharpie, chalk…), or don’t – it’s enough that you know it’s for him. Take a photo, then send it to me, indicating where in the world it is, and I'll post the #EitanRocks photo here. My hope is for Eitan Rocks to be placed all over the country, all over the world.

Thank you, with love,
Lisë
