When the first President Bush took on Saddam Hussein in Operation Desert Storm, I took to taking long walks through the woods along Long Island Sound near our home in Peconic. I would make piles of rocks along the way. To place one stone upon another seemed a primal human anti-entropic gesture.....the opposite of the destruction of war. In the sixties I never saw the point of waving signs while marching and chanting as a War Protest, and piles of stone seemed every bit as meaningful a gesture of protest. Piles of stone in the woods fall down for whatever reason; when I returned several years later, my protest piles were all gone.
