The fence up close…


I decided to get a little up close and personal with my favorite fence this week.  This is the fence by the turtle pond that holds the horses in and helps to keep them from coming into our yards and pooping on our grass.  It’s one of my favorite things around because it consists of a little of this and a little of that in great fence-y cooperation.  It kind of represents how I wish we were with each other in this world…a bunch of ragtag, unmatched pieces strung together to do something worthwhile.

Excellent photo essay. That first photo is so evocative of your wish for us that we learn to appreciate our differences and individual strengths for the good of all.
