A slow weekend after a busy week. Lots of time for resting and pondering lines, bars, and fences in my world.
(http://www.merriam-webster.com/thesaurus helped me with the following definitions and synonyms)
something set up as an example against which others of the same type are compared.
a region of activity, knowledge, or influence <advanced mathematics is a little outside of my line, but I’ll see what I can do to help>
a physical object that blocks the way.
Once you start thinking about them, you are likely to see lines, bars, and fences everywhere.
This is especially true here in Trinidad, but maybe in your world as well.
The trick is not to let the barricades and bulwarks into your bones;
to keep it all in perspective.
Try to relax
and remember that we have the power to decide which side of our barriers we want to live on.
To treat them as true limitations or to wear them like interesting backdrops to our story.
When it comes right down to it, once our story has been all told,
the bars and fences vanish,
and all that is left is the color we leave behind in the short little life we blinked.
-This blog post is dedicated to Amelia Hancock, a courageous and amazing woman who never let her physical barriers or perceived limitations keep her from living a full and creative life. She has left an incredibly colorful hole in the town of Brattleboro VT. I will miss her very much. My deepest love and condolences go out to her family and friends.
