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.

My reply, not written in the margins, is, ” how can you be sure? ”

They should have left a phone number so we could discuss the statement.

Writing most often leaves more questions than it answers.
