Thursday doors 4.25.19

Thursday doors, how much I have missed being able to participate in this series.  My hankering for a door brought me to my desk to look through my photos

An open doorway to another time and place?  A place tended and serene.

A romantic hide-a-way where one can laze the day away.  In this one, fall is in the air, and the weather holds that rustic charm of warm colours and textured wood grains.

To so many of us, who chase the many varied and interesting doors, and doorways.  They are passages to hidden or unknown “adventure”  There is always a story to be found when one enters through a new door.

Garden gates are another temptation. How many of us have had wonderful conversation in a nursery or greenspace over the admiration of floral and fauna.

We need only look around at all the different ways we use and display doorways, archways, gateways.  They are the subject of stories, and many are the central focus in a photo-story.  To the door chaser, they are a work of art,  not in themselves, but their presentation.

 

I know that spring is outside t.he door, but my mood this morning appears to be mellow. I am drawn to fall colours, and the charm I’ve found in my library of photos that I have collected.

When we wake up in the morning, we get to decide which will be the doorway we will use to begin the day.

The choice is ours.

Pay Careful attention without overly straining yourself or taking things too lightly.

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that  will help you to better express yourself.

    Nice to see you writing more. I hope you get some warmer weather to turn towards spring. In my eternal optimism, the tomato seedlings have started to sprout indoors under the grow light. Building their strength to go out into the world and bear fruit. That sounds so hopeful, but with my “green thumb”, I am always satisfied with enough tomatoes for a couple of hamburgers. 🙂

  2. Beautiful images and words. Yes indeed, the door we choose makes all the difference in the world. 🙂

  3. Truly fascinating doors. I wonder when the middle door was last used, the ivy has started to get a hold.

    I enjoy your doors series, my friend! And I’d like to leave a quote, if I may…

    “If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.”

    ― William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

  5. Stunning photos! I really love the autumn vine-covered door.

  6. Oh, these are all delightful! Thanks for sharing them. The first one reminds me of Huntington Gardens and I love the colors in the other two.
