If you're happy and you know it clap your hands.




If the stones had hands Im sure at the end of a wall building project they would clap. Sometimes you can almost sense the stones cheering you on as you build. As you get close to the end of the work it's like the end of a performance or athletic event. They, in a way, are just spectators. Stones like to watch us put them together in there favorite way of fitting, structurally. Even though they are hard and heavy this is so they fit together better. We are the ones who make the stones sing and the wall shout. The stones come together in a wall and it is like hands clapping, like cheering. They meet and make no sound, but there is certainly celebration, as the form of the wall is revealed. All the stones in the wall merge together in a kind of silent applause. Come on people, let's put your stones together, let's help give the walls a hand.
