surprising because the main arch felt alive with vibrations of rushing water surging through it.. touching it and *hearing the flow reminded me of listening into a seashell and hearing the ocean…but here, I listened to the creek through a rock with my fingers. by this point i hadn’t spoken a word all day…. i imagine the speech region of my brain was quite quiet, while the creative/intuitive centers were highly active…  then again i’m mostly speculating based on my current understanding of things…

    I love your work, very inspiring. You’ve opened my eyes to an entirely new contemplative practice. If you don’t mind sharing I am curious how you maintain equanimity while dealing with the frustration of failure i.e. collapsing stones, if indeed you do. This aspect of practicing any art feels extremely difficult to me and I would be grateful for any insights you may have regarding this aspect of practice.

    Warm Regards, Robert

    1. i normally stay aware of my frustration when it comes, and let it be. i let it come naturally with the process, and it usually goes on its own. trying to block it seems in a way like feeding it. so i kinda just allow it to do its thing while i continue to balance. frustration can easily be stopped also by stopping for a minute, taking a few deep breaths, and establishing a relatively more open air attitude…before going back to work/play

    You should visit Sunfish lake in New Jersey. It is at the Delaware water gap. There is a long history of stacking rocks at this lake. The rocks are flat and stack easy.
