It's the stones that put people together.

Sometimes we mistakenly think that we are in charge. We are convinced that people do the gathering and the placing of stones into organized structures called dry stone walls and miss the fact that in order to do this people have come together too. A well organized friendly network of walling enthusiasts is created each time a pile of stones allows itself to be made into a wall.

This Thanksgiving, Rocktoberfest (a unique dry stone walling celebration held each year here in Canada) will be one of those times.
