Many Moods of Fence

DAWN

"Those who dwell among
 the beauties & mysteries 
of the earth are never
 alone or weary of life."
                         Rachel Carson












Torii Gate Honolulu

"A torii (鳥居) literally bird abode, /ˈtɔəri.iː/) 
is a traditional Japanese gate 
most commonly found at the entrance of 
or within a Shinto shrine, where it
 symbolically marks the transition 
from the profane to the sacred."
Torii - Wikipedia, 










“Just because a door appears
 closed it does not mean 
that it is locked - nor that 
it will not open with 
the right heart, 
call or touch” 
                                Rasheed Ogunlaru
