Hi Neil,
I love your musing on the benefits or disadvantages of disturbing or not disturbing rocks. Thank you for pondering this conundrum.

This morning, I saw newly-stenciled messages on the pavement by all the storm drains in my neighborhood that read: "Dump No Waste [fish icon] Drains to Lake." Since I live by a lake, (a GREAT lake, at that) these signs did make some sense. The inclusion of the fish was nice, and lent a sort of Christ-like feeling to the whole admonition.

Although, now, come to think of it, they could have pictured a mermaid. That would have been even cooler. Well, I am glad you are not a statue today, and don't let the rocks weigh you down too much.
Your friend,
Wonder Woman

I'm still disturbed about the rocks not wanting to be disturbed. Actually, I think the rocks really want to be disturbed. I mean, who really wants to sit their whole life and never ever move. I freed one and now it is happy.
