I am a door. Not always pretty,, but usually functional. I come in all shapes and sizes, just like you do. You can open me, you can close me. What doesn’t usually happen, is you don’t take time to get to know me. You use me. Plain and simple, you use me at your convenience. Often I am left to endure what-ever weather comes alone, I keep you safe, do I get a thank you… seldom… how often do you simply bang me shut or slam me hard to make a point. Sometimes you even kick me. Since this a group with a focus on doors, is anyone interested in starting a Doors have feelings too.. group? Just asking.

We never know what gems we will find as we wander the paths we come across. I woke this morning to a cold, wet day, what had been rain and wet snow, temperatures here have been above normal for days, we have had no deep freeze for some time.. guess what .. temperatures are dropping, when you open the door the frigid cold snaps a sharp wet ice missile at you… the elder dog gives you a “hurry up” bark.. his tone tells you, he wants in NOW.
Sister whippet just got up .. went out and was very quick to come back… it is going to be a very different day today.. whoooppeeeee…. dress warmly.
Here is a flash back to a quote from 2016
Wisdom comes naturally when you are humble. You will stop growing if you have a conceited or boastful mind. Always remember to be humble.Perfect Liberty 2016.5
Love is a genuine feeling it is a heartfelt embrace, a gentle touch, an understanding heart – love that is real will transcend all mortal boundaries and imposed rules, it simply IS – be present – BE happy. Words can manipulate be misunderstood be hurtful, listen to the silence… the spaces … often what is not said is what at the root of unhappiness.

I never thought about it from the door’s perspective, but I have built doors, and I don’t like to see them abused. A door is an almost magical device. If build, installed and maintained properly, it endures the harshness of nature and provides a welcoming image. Thanks for your thoughts on behalf of doors everywhere.
having built a door you know the love and planning that goes into it … when it is a solid wood door, you get to feel its strength, smell its earthiness as it is planed and shaped to “perfection” …. I love wood in all its incarnations. sending you a big gnarly hug.
Thank you. Building a door requires understanding what the wood will do. I don’t make many, but I always enjoy the process.
Janus is the god of doorways
Thank YOU Michael… happy new year!
