Raphael and Lluc part company after six days of intensive building. Raphael is the amazing heavy machine operator who helped move the biggest stones and move dirt and deliver material to the wallers at the Ventura 2011 Stone Symposium Workshop. Lluc flew in from Mallorca Spain to be one of the four instructors, each doing 25 feet of wall nearly ten feet high. He worked very hard and his energy and enthusiasm was infectious. In fact, there was a wonderful sense of harmony and cooperation between the two dozen or so people involved in this massive project. Everyone learned a lot,met up with old friends and made new ones. No one got hurt during the workshop. No body was mean spirited, rude or critical. The peace sign Raphel made with his hands in this photo says it all.
