Old Walls Will Fall


Pictured is an old volcanic rock wall in Auckland’s Cornwall Park.

Been there for decades, and will probably be there for many more.


But inevitably, left unattended, it will deteriorate and crumble, bit by bit.

Or some sudden event may breach or destroy it (Berlin Wall, anyone?).

And, sooner or later, the walls we build in our minds to protect ourselves from perceived threats have to go too.

They might keep us “safe”, but they prevent new thinking and better ways from getting in.

I’ve had a few old walls fall in recent times, and it is not the end of the world.

Just the opposite in fact…
