Jesus is reported to have said, “Even the rocks will cry out!”
These rocks are saying something. If you start looking, even a broken road can start speaking to you.
These rocks are saying that unless you fix the underlying mess, if you just try to patch things over, to cover up the old with something new and shiny and smooth, well, time has a way of eroding the mask until what you’ve covered shows through. And it’s even worse looking then.
