Building permanent features of stone is about creating as many points of contact between the stones as possible and thus maximizing the degree of balance throughout the whole structure.
There is a tremendous satisfaction that comes with knowing that this has been achieved, and that balance is enough!
We don't need to be or do anything more.
To create balance is really what it's all about.
There is nothing more fulfilling
Such pursuit should never be perceived as wasteful or phoney or contrived.
