did I ever post the boulder room

the idea is, it's a room where you go to appreciate the boulder

@Alexis I love how there's grass around that boulder. It's almost like the boulder needs to be planted in dirt, and have deep roots and stuff.

The Boulder Is Alive

@zatnosk It felt important to me that the boulder not simply be removed from whatever its previous location was, but that it would be implanted in a small, reasonable recreation of where it's from.

Like a zoo animal, but It's A Boulder.

@Alexis My headcanon is that the room, and the entire building, was built around the boulder, and the boulder have been in that exact spot since the last ice age(*).

(* my arctic-adjacent climate bias is showing)

@Alexis I had the exact same reading of this this time as the first, with the boulder in question being The Boulder from Avatar

@Alexis @InspectorCaracal As I understand it, they wanted The Rock to voice The Boulder but he was unavailable so Mick Foley did it instead.

@Aleums @Alexis yes.... i need this boulder room... i need a boulder house....

@Alexis finally, boulder is getting the respect it deserves

@root Sitting on the boulder is lightly discouraged by the presence of the chair, I think -- but if sitting on it is what you feel is the appropriate way to appreciate the boulder, yes, absolutely.

@root Basically I think anything that a park employee would not tell you off for doing to a boulder in a park is fine, as long as it's in the spirit of "appreciate the boulder."

@Alexis i see! yes, i would love and care for the boulder. not disrespect the boulder.

What if it isn't that the light has been arranged to fall on the boulder, but that somehow the light makes the ground swell up into a boulder.

Perhaps the sign 'boulder room' doesn't refer to the room you sit in, but the one through the window: the room with the light that makes the boulders.

@Alexis aaah, yes. The boulder room. I could use a visit yo the boulder room about now..

@Alexis @zatnosk ...can I fill the walls with shelves and/or cabinets to store stuff?

@Anke @zatnosk For me, personally, I feel that would distract from the boulder, but it's your personal boulder room, you can do what you want!

@Alexis this looks like a room I would design in Animal Crossing

@Alexis I was sure I had seen something like this and responded that it looked like an Animal Crossing room, and sure enough here's my reply.

I would also say it'd probably make a good Minecraft room.

@The_T Yeah, I have a boulder room in my Animal Crossing house.

Only seemed like the natural thing to do.

@Alexis just like a real house, I'm too poor to own an Animal Crossing house

Seems like the original concept for the meditation room at the UN headquarters.
I want my own boulder to contemplate now though...

@gamayun Ooh, I'd not seen that before, I don't think, but it's very much exactly what I was going for!

@Alexis I feel like I've been there

on the west side of Harathi Hinterlands or something

room with 2 boulders 

@Alexis the Bolder room

room with more boulders 

@The_T A very thin room with a bunch of boulders in it: A folder of boulders.

@Alexis This one has no moss growing on it: The Balder Boulder room.
