The mason’s struggle:

“I select a stone from a pile, think of a good place in the wall for it, and begin shaping it. The shaping work needs to be careful, rhythmic, and patient. Each stone has hidden fracture lines that, when agitated, can turn a potentially great rock into broken waste. The rhythm in which I set my chisel in place and hit it with the hammer is not so much set by me as lived in. Attempting to stop the hammer mid-swing is never a good idea, so it’s very important to be patient, carefully placing the chisel on a flat face that will transfer the hammer’s energy straight down into the stone and hopefully break off a chip to reveal a brand new face, known only to me and God.

The mason’s struggle is to bring out potential, without overwriting the created beauty of the earth.”
