  • Pale Green Sheets
    540 words
    The floor is pale and yet full of texture. A rug covers the floor in need of a stretching. In an array of gloss and semi-gloss, shades of pale blue cover three of the four walls and their baseboards speckled only by an occasional paint chip or faded fingerprint.

Shelves protrude from a wall adjacent to the door, topped by a number of knickknacks and decor...

What drew my to the Great Wall is that the Great Wall isn't only a physical thing but it is also something that has stood for a culture.

This draws me to The Great Wall of China. The three dynasties that constructed the wall were the Qin, the Han, and...

    898 words
    Walls and Borders Do good fences really make good neighbors (666) Robert Frost's poem Mending Wall examines this as a local issue. It can also be interpreted as a global issue. Frost writes about two neighbor farmers and how a wall between their property effects the relationship between the two.

  • Neighbors Need Walls

Sometimes you would have to stare at nothing, nothing at all. While at other times you would have to bear living without love and tender care. C...

    Abu Adil sat on a grey plastic chair; his traditional Arab headdress contrasting sharply with his crisply ironed shirt and grey trousers. In Palestinian society the headdress symbolizes age and wisdom, a remnant of an older order, which is still evident but in a process of retreat. The unique topaz and white facade of his house stood out from the uniform earthen hues of the other houses in his street. "This was the land of my ancestors", he told us, "the land my forefathers had cultivated". Ther...
