5. BUILD A STONE WALL
You don’t have to be Andy Goldsworthy (the artist who creates astonishing sculptures from natural objects) to relish the simple pleasures of rearranging rocks. There are actual classes in dry stone walling (TheStoneTrust.org), but freestyle is fine, too. Those who don’t have the energy can live vicariously through Mariana Cook’s new book of photographs, Stone Walls (Damiani, $50), a series of shots of ancient walls in places as varied as Kentucky, Peru, and England.
