This delightful island with about 3000 residents, is a colourful sight. Its main industries are fishing and lace making, the houses were originally painted in this way so that fisherman could see their homes from sea, Practical, but for me, when I look at the wonderful array of colours i see love and harmony, especially when the sun is shining down on the community
When I first saw this picture, I had to look at it again to see if it was a painting or a picture.The yellow is so sunny, so bright and cheerful. What struck me about the place is the serenity and quiet of the place. I saw the pictures first, and then the video.
This picture with the visual inclusion of signs of life,took me right to the village, I could imagine the children playing outside, the women gathering to talk over coffee. The curtain pulled across so that the family could enjoy the fresh air and still retain their privacy. The village has been there for years and years, the lacing industry there since 1400’s. It takes tourists about 45 min. to get there by boat, Burano is an island in the Northern Venetian Lagoon, close to Venice and Murano. It is known for its brightly hued houses, We can certainly see why.
You know how I love doors. Doors are the symbol (for me) of new beginnings. I love, love, love them. Their diversity, the mystery, the adventure. It appears that in this community, I would never lack for an interesting door or doorway.
In our immediate world, the doors may not always be visible but they are there never-the-less. Watch for them,be flexible in your wanderings, dare to step outside the box and explore a new door today. or let one close, and enjoy the freedom of exploring and seeing the world with fresh eyes, eyes wiling to surrender to the joy of living, basking in the emotions of life and the myriad pleasures derived from living life to its fullest.
