The most spiritual part of the job was in smoothing out the convex cuppedlooking areas underneath each step, largely hidden from view. Because of thelittle rod trusses previously mentioned, each step had regularly spacedbumps under them to deal with. They created little convexities between them.I grabbed the smooth Mexican beach pebbles you see as shaping and smoothingtools. I quickly began hearing surf sounds in my head, while slurping andsliding, and gliding the smooth rock over wet mud. An occasional spritzingwith the water spray bottle lubed the process. I began connecting sculpturalshaping with nature's forces, feeling like a magnetism was pushing my hand.I also realized I had been under the steps too long and had a long way togo. Go with the flow I say. I began singing.
