One of the first things I come across on this Stone Island beach is a handwritten message on a sand blackboard.

It brings up an old question – “If no one hears a tree falling in the forest, does it mean the tree didn’t fall?”

It brings up a new question – “If no one sees our messages, does that mean we weren’t here? ”

Soon enough, we are going to get comments.

People, like it, or not, are going to start throwing in their two cents worth.

My reply, not written in the sand,  is- ” are you sure? ”

They should have left a phone number so we could talk.

Writing usually leaves more questions than it answers.
