The Wall

DSC_0174Despite its holes, this fence is a wall between space developed by humans and space reserved for nature. It separates swampy marshlands from sidewalks at one of my favorite nearby parks.

That park will never fail to remind me of the better times from high school: walking around its forest perimeter on dates, lazing around on a picnic blanket reading German phrasebooks with my sister and her best friend, and running my first 5K race (and later, my second, in which I beat my own time). To me this fence separates that time in my life from this time in my life, but through the spaces in the wire I can always see and remember those days.
