There are walls, and then there are walls...

This is a wall.

This is a wall with ivy on it.

This is a wall covered with colourful autumny leaves,

It's a wall, yes -- one that provides a bit of privacy,

but isn't a wall that encloses anything.

Maybe it's the only kind of wall anyone should need.

On this morning (or should that be mourning?), I can't help but notice the numbers at the bottom of my computer's screen: 09/11/2016. It seems indeed like quite another kind of 9/11.

Powerful, especially with the photo, Heidi. Who needs walls of divisiveness and hatred based on fear? Susan

Or walls meant to exclude, reject or ignore. Thank you for this poetic insight.

Yesterday I heard about one wall we should erect -- a wall to keep hate from creeping across the border into Canada. That wall would be invisible, but strong: a wall of our values.
