A Dry Stone Wall is an Expression of Quiet Strength

A dry stone wall is an expression of quiet strength. Its strength lies in its stability. Its stability in the placement of each stone by its maker. Each stone quietly rests, and in turn becomes a resting place. A collection, a construction, and in the end, a dry stone wall is a reflection; the careful considerations of its maker’s mind.

“…the laborer’s vision and strength persists after the labor is done.”
Anne Proulx
