Beneath a straw hat with an upturned brim, Javier Valdivia's face shows his simple pleasure in sitting awhile on a stone bench of his own making, work boots planted on river-rock paving, hands set squarely on his knees. Soon, though, those hands are on the move, sliding out unconsciously along the seat, as if unable to keep themselves from feeling the mortared joints and remembering the weight of individual boulders, each plucked, years ago, from a canyon or a stream.

"And they take so much time and energy."
