The door was closed, but I knew if I turned the handle it would open. Why did I hesitate, what was keeping me from entering? Instinctively I knew that beyond the door would be a series of opportunities/challenges. Was I ready to press forward into the unknown. Everyday we face such decisions, some we don’t blink an eye, we simply make our choice and move on. Others are not as simple, they require more thought.
Most doors are very good at what they are built for. They don’t show you what is inside, you have to approach the door, knock and enter, or wait to be admitted. Most doors keep their secrets well.
Thursday doors is a weekly challenge for people who love doors and architecture. Over time and during our travels we capture the various doorways that we encounter, then showcase or present them in a blog on Thursdays. We have participants from all over the world, I have been able to enjoy the most intriguing doors, some so colourful and exotic in their appearance, and others a mystery, whatever could the householder, or builder been thinking? Always it is a journey of wonder.
Some doors are similar and others are completely fashioned and showcased to leave the viewer intoxicated by their charm. AND… let’s not forget the old world charm and the doors that have stood the test of time.
This is your link to Dan’s site, No Facilities where you will find a list of all the doors presented by fellow door enthusiasts.. ttps://nofacilities.com/2023/03/02/slow-travel-more-doors/
Doors are part of our every day. How often do you walk through a door and not give it a second thought.
What is “normal” is different for each individual … Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It is important to understand others’ feelings.Perfect Liberty 2021.16
In my world this applies to doors too. They are all different, and each door holds it’s own “secret” next time you go through one… see if it whispers to you….

I often wonder what is beyond the doors in my photos and the photos of others participating in Thursday Doors. I love the first barn door you have today. Thanks for joining us, and for giving us something to think about.
good evening Dan… cheers!
This is a wonderful meditation on doors. I’m going to ponder this.
Good morning Eilene, how is the weather in your neck of the woods?

Thank you Sheree.. sending happy hugs your way..
That 3rd one has got a story to tell☺️. Nice post
agree, it was back from the road, and didn’t appear to have a drive or laneway to reach it.. it just sat there silently a quiet reminder of another time.
A very thought-provoking post on the nature of doors. I love your photos. They are quite eye-catching! I especially like the one with the yellow chairs and the barn with red-trimmed windows. 🙂
Thanks Brenda… waves good afternoon across the miles..
