Fences – Man-made & Otherwise

So they all went away from the little log house. The shutters were over the windows, so the little house could not see them go. It stayed there inside the log fence, behind the two big oak trees that in the summertime had made green roofs for Mary and Laura to play under.
Laura Ingalls Wilder

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.
Robert Frost

I like to take pictures of lots of things: people-such as my nephews, my dogs, and just interesting objects that I see. For instance, I might take a picture of flowers by the side of the road, an old sign or a fence.

Love your neighbor as yourself; but don’t take down the fence.
Carl Sandburg

These fences are just three of the ones I took pictures of for my grandies. They pointed them out to me on our walk through the community gardens.

Speaking of fences, there are emotional fences, as well as man-made ones that we construct. We often fence ourselves in within our minds and hearts in order to protect ourselves from emotional overload, from a trauma, or from being vulnerable.
