The name of Ron Divino comes up frequently whenever rock balancing is discussed in the SF Bay Area. His individual blend of deep spirituality and sincere friendliness is exemplified by his comment on MrSF.com that, "No matter what's going on, Mother Nature provides us with this beautiful world"; a beauty he contributed to with his playful and exuberant art, and with his optimism despite personal misfortune. His continued commitment to faith and balance after a stroke are shown on the One Hand Balancing page of this site.


Born in Crotone, in Calabria, Italy, near where naturally balanced stones once existed, Mario Carnè has a young son, Simon, who has already begun to balance at his side. Mario himself has been balancing for almost 10 years, beginning with "two round, smooth stones from the mountains," he writes. And, in that moment, he "felt so relaxed" that his "difficulties in life were for a moment put aside". He is featured on the Generazioni-Generations page on this site.
