A story about an American traveler and his lady who is Canadian--She has to return to Canada to renew her visa. They arrive on the border between Canada and US out of the city of Newport Vermont.

They begin a romance charged by a chain link fence from two free countries...Canada and the US. (there is folly here...the border) He should be allowed to pass--no reason, but somehow fate stepped in. Their romance is via email, and skype across the border in the to get together for the to be rejoined. Weeks pass from late summer- and into Autumn, and into harsh brutish winter. (This story is true... names have been changed) It represents how vivacious freedom can be in spite of itself across friendly borders.
