MAKE GOOD NEIGHBORS
Speaking metaphorically, I think that putting up "walls" or "fences" alienates those around us and doesn't allow communication to happen freely. Occasionally, we must erect a wall or a fence to protect us from what might harm us but are they always necessary? Maybe the height of the fence has something to do with the outcome. Make the fence accessible; make it only high enough that someone can scale it if they need to. And if you're lucky, you neighbor will put up a fence that gives you something to think about; something to contemplate; Many times an obstacle is put up in front of us but we always have the choice in how we deal with it. Life is full of choices, isn't it! I'm just now starting to see that I can choose to look through the cracks of the fence, I can jump over it, I can pull up a ladder to it and scoot myself over it if I choose. It doesn't have to be an obstacle; it can be an opportunity.
