After an unexpected heart operation and near death experience at the age of 52, I had an overwhelming impulse to build a stone cave.
After the two more heart interventions — the placement of stents — and another near death experience, I felt an overwhelming need to build a stone labyrinth.
Since my recovery from a severe heart attack, I have been trying to figure out how to build a circular stone dome, with stained glass windows.
I met someone last month who had a heart attack about the same time I did; he too, was drawn to build with stones.
What is it about stones?
In the last week of this blog, I have been struggling to understand Jung’s interest in stone.
He started the tower at Bollingen after the death of his mother; each of the stages of Bollingen were connected with different stages of his life.
I still don’t understand the mystery and pull of stones; I still will build with them as soon as the snow melts.
