Zen Wood



Each morning, while working on this one wall, I would light some incense.  I picked up a nearby Stone and a couple of pieces of scrap wood, and made an Alter for the job.


Finding Stones in the woods, or moving them yourself from the stone yard to the site, is a great way to get to know them.

Spread them around, and by the time the work begins, you and the Stones are already old friends. When you look at a space in the wall, you already know where that One Stone is laying.

The joy is just watching the wall build itself.

If you start thinking, you may just as well go home, because its not going to work.

Just be present, and watch the wall build itself, that is the joy.
