Last weekend we attended the wedding of some friends of ours. The chair where each guest was supposed to sit was revealed by a small stone with each person's name on it at the particular place setting. I was interested to see stone showing up at the reception table and having a fairly prominent role, even at such an important ceremony. Perhaps it is the long lasting quality of stone that was being made reference too. Perhaps it was merely an artistic touch.
Anyway I was amused at the idea of a stone telling me where I was supposed to be positioned rather than the other way around.
