Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
On this rock I will build my church.
There seems to be a correspondence between where I am working with stone and what I am working on within.
Last summer and fall, after being away from Alaska and home for five months and feeling like a stranger in a strange land on that journey, I found myself arranging stones on the internal walls of the cabin.
I had planned and expected to do work on some of the external features of the Stone Sanctuary, yet I was called to do this work on the interior.
The stones exuded a sense of timelessness and containment, and I slowly began to feel more solid on the inside.
