The word “sedimentary” reminds of the word “elementary” which has been oft-attributed to a favoriite fictional character of mine, Sherlock Holmes. I don’t recall that he said “elementary” very often, but I do know that any imitation of Basil Rathbone’s interpretation of Holmes is sure to use the phrase, “Elementary, my dear Watson,” just like any Cagney imitation will include the phrase “You dirty rat.” This is true, though Cagney never uttered that phrase in any movie he was in.
Sherlock Holmes takes me to a place where I can pass any amount of time required – I used to read the Illustrated Omnibus of Sherlock Holmes, containing about 20 of his most famous mysteries everytime I subbed at Carson High School (once a week-ish, back in the day.) In my happy place, I revisited a favorite story, about the blue carbuncle, & looked at the illustrations from the Omnibus (in my minds eye, of course.) It’s amazing the details that can be recalled simply by having nothing other than a group, gaggle, herd, of rocks staring one in the face. Sedimentary, of course. You can pray for me, if you remember. :)
