thanks for the comments guys. Excellent poem Paul.

I spent a lot of time hurling, flipping and tossing pebbles into the Adriatic this summer and thought it might be a good idea if a trifle self-indulgent to write down what each stone said as it hit the water "kalopp... flumph..." etc.

Needless to say, I didn't and most likely never will.
