The High Standard of Character


Many of the best wallers (like their walls) are exemplary, highly supportive and genuinely gracious. They are not mean spirited or coarse (even if their walls might be 'coursed') 

A well built dry stone wall is not a high maintenance structure. It lasts for years. It doesn't need special attention or cause a lot of trouble. It's just the 'standard' thing you would expect from a wall or a person. It does the job well and leaves other things to sort themselves out over the natural course of time. 

Oh that a waller's talent never exceeded the level of their character. Oh that highly talented wallers conducted themselves with as high a standard and as keen a concern for composure and integrity as their stonework seems to display.
