" Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry. / Mother's gonna make all of your nightmares come true. / Mother's gonna put all of her fears into you. / Mother's gonna keep you right here under her wing. / She won't let you fly, but she might let you sing. / Mama will keep baby cozy and warm. / Ooooh babe, ooooh babe, oooooh babe, / Of course Mama's gonna help build the wall."
- Pink Floyd, The Wall, Mother
A wall is not a door. The dictionary defines a wall as, a solid structure that defines and sometimes protects an area. Walls can be built up for protective purposes. Essentially, they are blocking something from getting in either physically or mentally. What is it that comes to mind when you think of that statement? What could it mean, or does it have meaning at all? Could a wall, in fact, be a door, by letting us know information about the person or thing it is protecting? Is it keeping something in or keeping something out? We look foward to seeing what kind of walls you will right about.
