Stone Walls

Fences may not make good neighbors, but consider the walls of time, stones stacked like puzzle pieces against the vagaries of wind, rain, snow, sleet, and centuries. Consider the hands lifting the stones and placing them with care so that they interlock. Centuries ago. Stone fences mark our separation from our neighbors and our past. But what beauty in their patterns.
