If These Walls Could Talk is partially a book about personal experiences, but it is also a journal to catalog buildings being renovated or torn down. http://goodnightraleigh.com is a local webpage I like to read that showcases some of the historic architecture in the Raleigh area that is still thriving and some long gone. There are extensive descriptions of the buildings and their histories described, as well as photos then and now.. Folks write in with anecdotes of things that happened at these buildings... and in a way it seems like the walls are talking. As you look at the buildings and the places of gathering in your community that have a history, are you giving them their proper reverence? Can you hear the stories of the ghosts, or imagine the things hidden in the walls and under the dirt? Can you remember the community that met and lived within, the stories told, the celebrations and losses? Can you hear the whispers of the secrets? Look at the walls of the place where you live. What would they say 100 years from now... if walls could talk?
