A companion to Dry Stone Walling Across Canada
What a wonderful entry, John. Bobby Watt's song says so much to all those who work with stones and to those who walk beside them. All we need to do is to listen carefully. Norman HaddowNorman
Bobby is right. I'm no hippie, but I'm a firm believer that energy is stored in stone. Simple physics tells us energy can be transferred or stored, and energy comes in many forms... heat, light, sound, strength, emotion, etc. Under long term exposure, or sudden bursts, stone has no choice but to absorb energy. Uranium absorbs so much that it can run power plants! I think some people are more tuned in to this energy... some close their eyes and chant, while others use it to read how the stone will cut, sit or simply belongs elsewhere. Either way, I'm sure it affects people different ways or not at all... like ABBA music.. but I suspect masons are masons because they are tuned differently. Some radios pick up stations that others don't... doesn't mean the station doesn't exist! Man, this is deep... I should not contribute to blogs before coffee. js
I'm thankful that you do John.
Sorry... I was out all night with Rob Ford.
