Recently the Highlights Foundation added a new building, using part of the foundations of an old barn. The new space is a cozy yet roomy classroom and meeting place on the inside. On the outside it’s a maze of intricate stonework.
The lichened and weathered rocks of the old barn foundation support the newer stones. Enormous chunks of bluestone pave the classroom, the porch, even the bathrooms. The walls are mosaics of rough-hewn stones, each piece with its own beauty.
Writing is like that–word piled on word piled on word. Sometimes it’s harder than hauling rocks.
When I looked closely, I discovered what these stones were for.
