Yesterday morning turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day. The sky was illuminated with clouds and blueness. Contrary to the grey within the clouds, the sun was shining brightly, and within thirty minutes those grey clouds turned to perfectly white loveliness.
To the left of the fence is the South Fork Trail, taken yesterday morning while walking. There is no sign of life in the photo (other than nature’s beauty), but within one hour, there were marathon runners to the left of the fence, along the trail. I didn’t take photographs of the runners. I was there to strictly cheer them on. Sometimes it is more important to watch than to photograph a scene.
It was quite the sight to see. There was an abundance of color from the running outfits, and an abundance of feet. Having run the L.A. Marathon in 1994, I appreciate the effort, training and dedication it takes to not only run, but finish, a marathon.
Here’s hoping your week is a good one!
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.

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