Walls




Walls have such immense meaning. They give us boundaries, defined space, both internally and externally. We build walls for protection. Sometimes these walls keep us hidden, away from that which we probably need to confront. But we build them anyway. When we tore down the old walls, we opened ourselves up to a huge community of support and love. We stood completely vulnerable, but we were embraced and protected by new walls. As we build our new house and put up new walls, we remind ourselves to remain open. These walls mean so much to me. I have a space. I have a home. I may not be able to live in it yet, but the walls define my space, and I feel at peace for it.
