Stone Masonry and Writing
From my good friend Wilmer Frey, writer (and occasional obsessive stone mason). When not writing, parenting, or farmining, he is building a 140' x 8' dry stack retaining wall on his wall in New Hampshire. Always wise, in an email Will reminds me : "Have I mentioned before that stone work is kinfolk to writing? One stone, one word, each of them one after another, over and time, one line/row at a time. Sometime they fit, more often they do not. But when they do...lordy. That celebrated stay against confusion."
