“After 25 minutes of working on the stone I stopped because I got so tired. When the dust settled I realized there was a whole circle of about 25 people within 5 feet watching me. It dawned on me then that I had been so involved with the stone that I wasn’t aware of anything that was going on just 5 feet away from me. I remember that there was kind of a connection between the stone and me. It was kind of a struggle. The stone was pushing me, instead of me pushing it and I liked that resilience it had. I still feel it’s beating me, instead of me beating it. “Jesús Moroles
