Sometimes I will be walking along, minding my own business, and something will catch my eye. And then I can’t stop wondering about it. That is what happened when I saw this yesterday morning.
Small stacks of stones, tucked in and around a carved out coral ledge. Lots of them. Some comprised of three stones, others had as many as five. The biggest stones at the bottom, smaller ones on top. Who put them there? What do they mean? How has a pounding rain or high surf or heavy wind not toppled them? For twenty four hours I’ve been imagining stone stories. Perhaps there is a meaning that everyone else knows. I am not going to search Google to find an answer because I rather like the theory I’ve settled on. I think each of these stacks was put there by couples who are building a life together. I think they symbolize the start of a solid foundation. Don’t tell me if I’m wrong.
