Stone wall reflections (audio)

On my walk through the Franklin Town Forest, I came upon an Eagle Scout project doing some trail work. That and the stone walls I find in these woods prompt the reflections as I think out loud and share my thoughts today.

Enjoy!





"Before I built a wall I'd ask to knowWhat I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence."
