Do Repair Kits for Wood Gates Actually Work?

No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal. – Marilyn Ferguson

Egress wilt languish,

Slip one past the part’s keeper,

Pace with replenish,

Imbibe refractometer,

Differentiate distinguish.

The world is sagging, snagging, scaling, spalling, pilling, pinging, pitting, warping, checking, fading, chipping, cracking, yellowing, leaking, stalling, shrinking, and in dynamic unbalance. – Donald Barthelme
