         A KENTUCKY DRYSTONE MASONRY FENCE HAS NO MORTAR.  The artisan places the stones so that their own weight and peculiar shapes hold them together from within. At first sight the stones can seem ill-fitted. Small stones occupy odd spots, loose fill can be seen spilling out. But the stones are placed to shift over time. Weather, oddly shaped stones, shifting ground, incidental damage, rather than undermining the fence, actually compact it together through the years, so that the fence grows even stronger and more beautiful. These fences have stood for more than 150 years. Sometimes I feel my own thought to be ill-fitted, uncemented, and loose, but I trust under the pressure of the years and the forced of life, they can somehow fit together as well.
