Hunger Stone :
Recent droughts in Europe once again made visible the “Hunger Stones” in some Czech and German rivers.
These stones were used to mark desperately low river levels that would forecast famines.
This one, in the Elbe river, is from 1616 and says: “If you see me, cry.”
“when the well is dry, we will know the worth of water.”

and that equals 1 museum.
“as with other phases of nature, I have probably loved the rocks more than I have studied them.’
he spent all of his recess
digging in the
hard muddy ground
broken plastic shovel
and a little team
of even littler friends
and at long last
all of this hard work
geologists have a saying – rocks remember.
