Good Fences- Simply

Are you ready to go fencing with me?


May we all be fenced by the simple things in life.


The World According to Fences.


Around every fence corner -
you'll meet a hardy fence post robustly keeping it all together.




"These fences, we all know, are simply observers holding together the very things we humans want fenced." - Me





Along every fence line


something is waiting.



"You only grow by coming to the end of something and by beginning something else." - John Irving

"and through every fence"

is something reaching through.






- and especially behind every good fence-




Is the spot where you are.

"Soar, eat ether, see what has never been seen; 
depart, be lost, but climb."
Edna St. Vincent Millay




"Life is like a mirror.  Smile at it and it smiles back at you." - Peace Pilgrim

and 

"Fences are like a destination.  Follow it and it leads you on a journey."

My goodness, I enjoyed that stone fence. Reminds me of a place we use to go to in the mountains when I was a kid. Good memories. Love all the words you have shared too. Thanks and enjoy the weekend, Anne
