Thursday doors

Which door beckons to you today? What story/impression does it call to you as you drive/walk by?

Life is a series of opportunities, we are always being given opportunities or presented with a puzzle or challenge, some we rejoice in experiencing, others we arrive and have no idea how we did so. Did we enter with an open mind, did we see the moment present itself and let it go by…. or simply walk through without even looking.

In my part of the world right now, even tho’ it is only September, the fall colours are already in many places in full blown colour. I saw a magnificent sight along the road the other day, but the road was so busy with traffic coming both ways.. I could but admire…. the tips of the leaves were a deep crimson red, the rest of the leaf was a golden yellow, yet near the stem the edges were still an emerald green. when next I drive by… well… who knows..

Service tonight at 7 pm. for those of you who can make it to the church, if not please pray with us from home. 29th is PL Anniversary Day, the ceremony where we express our appreciation to our Founders and the Oshieoya-sama that followed.

Are you overdoing things? Not only do you harm yourself when you overdo things, but you may be imposing on others as well.

Thursday

A chop suey of doors from the past.. leaving the city and making my way into the countryside, with fall around the corner, and the pumpkin latte’s appearing on menus …soon the doorways will be festive with colours of fall… of all things I saw a sign the other day for pumpkin spice noodles!!! That is a stretch even for my imagination, certainly for my taste buds.

doors

The door

transparent – sometimes

Most hide and protect what is inside from prying eyes

only if you are allowed entry do you see what is inside

even then, some settings are deceiving

well thought out and concealing

private or commercial places – to enter –

we all must pass through a door

There isn’t one day/night that at one time or another

you have gone through a door/ either to enter or leave

Do remember how many doors you encountered today?

whether at work or play, coming or going away

I’m sure you met a door today.

To visit and enjoy a grand variety of doors, please visit Dan Antion’s site, No facilities , today is the feature, Thursday Doors.. https://nofacilities.com/2022/09/01/more-from-clay-hill/

Thursday…choices

Which door would give you the greatest pleasure to enter…. or attract your attention… why? Each offers a different experience.. doors are special that way..=^-^=

Doors are so important in our lives, and we take them for granted. Wandering around, we find doors in all shapes, colours and sizes… they all lead somewhere or to something. I’m blessed with friends who know and share my love of doors.. I was delighted when this picture landed in my InBox. Lately I have been working on being more aware and mindful… this picture brought joy, made me smile, two doors flung open in welcome.

You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for World Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.

Thursday 4th

Doors come in all shapes and sizes and over the years, I have shared many many doors . Lately I have discovered cigar porn, I had no idea, none… that to some the search for that “perfect” smoke, is like the search for a fine wine. Like anything else, I lived searching out my interests and sharing …which is great fun.. but while I was looking at taking pictures of doors, someone else was searching out a good cigar.. and like the doors cigars come in all shapes and sizes.. AND.. where and how they are grown makes a difference in the taste etc. of the cigar. ie. how long it burns, HOW it burns, etc etc.

Having said that. I went back to my doors and (these were from one folder, out of “many”) I can’t taste the door, but they hold an attraction, I asked myself, is it the door itself, or is it how its been painted and how its being used that makes it “stand out” for me. Is it the door itself or how it fits into the structure (if there is one) .. what is it about doors…??? We are many, I had no idea just how many till I discovered Norm’s Thursday doors,( now hosted by Dan ), Thursday Doors lives on.. and we continue to gather participants. Fellow Door chases/stalkers… any suggestions on how and why we fell in love with “Doors”?

Thursday doors is a widely read and circulated post – I’m curious, have you or do you know of anyone who is into cigars like we are to doors? I’m over 50 I’ve lived a number of years, and it is only recently I’ve discovered there is a world out there where the cigar is the centre of attention.

How many people do you know that walk past, go through and use a door, but never see it.

When you get stuck, go back to the beginning. Could it be that you have forgotten what initially sparked your enthusiasm? By remembering what inspire you in the beginning, you will feel a renewed enthusiasm.

a door J’adore

I stand here ready – I am not pretty- nor am I handsome – I am a door

I function – I open and I close – I may not be considered attractive – but I do my job – I am a door

I am different, I am unique – there was purpose in my making – I am a door

– now dear reader – you can say

I just met a door so interesting, so individualistic in character, it only made sense, to create a verse

to celebrate how ordinary can be extraordinary when it becomes a door.

Friends

The charm of doorways found in Quebec City.

I don’t get to travel around as much as I used to … or would like to… I’m so grateful to have friends who know of my love of doors and send me smiles when they are away. Blessings come in all shapes and sizes, I am blessed with friends who are thoughtful and caring.

Today on Thanksgiving (PL day of Appreciation) I give thanks as I do every month on the 21st. for my valued friends. It is impossible to tell them everyday, but I pray every day and keep them in my heart always. Friendships are gifts that are treasures that enhance our lives.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Let’s live with gratitude towards everyone and everything all day today.

Thursday

Good morning! Bom dia amigos, desejo a todos uma semana maravilhosa…. what a week! Where is the month of July going.. the other day I saw a hint of colour in the palette of greens. That tell tale sign of a rosy blush that will soon turn to red.. Our wandering photographer Ian Mitchell was on one of his “expeditions” when he took the above pictures while in the Gatineau Park. (on the Quebec side of the river) Twice I tried to find my way there only to be turned back by road closers. My known routes have been shut down due to a number of reasons, (last few years these changes have crept in un-noticed by moi) now to get there I’m told I have to travel a different route, using highways and going through towns that are out of the way (for me).

Why has this proved to be such a “chore” for me.. I have no idea. I guess because it was more or less in my backyard before, and now to get there I have to travel east, cross a different bridge, and make my way north via a super highway, it has lost its flavour… Nature was minutes away, aaahhhh says my inner voice, “you forget” that was before expansions, populations growth, new subdivisions, blah, blah.. blah. Ian ‘s hobby (one of them) is craft beers…maybe I need a new hobby to encourage more travel outside of my comfort zone.

Another friend actually got me out of the house to go for dinner last night. Whooo hoooo catchoooo, no cooking, no clearing up after, no dishes… all I had to do was walk to the buffet islands and fill my plate. Servers brought warm/hot towels prior to the meal, and after..(for wiping of sticky fingers and patting lips of excess sauces etc.) The meringue on the lemon pie was almost 2 inches high. yum….

Think of the timing before you say.. ” but…” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being respectful of others’ opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak

I was browsing the internet and found this picture on Cameron Shankland’s page, it is so amazing I’m sharing it with you.. there is a door down the way on the building, but it is the artwork I want you to see. (yes I did write to him !)

7.7.22 Tanabata

Think “now is the time” Instead of “it’s no use now” Don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

Thursday Doors taken by good friend Nick Vrtis who was travelling in Germany recently, Grey door is the Cathedral in St. Ola, and the brow doorway is Kirkwall. Thank you Nick…!

Tanabata is based on the legendary meeting of two stars, Hikoboshi and Orihime, which are represented by Altair and Vega, respectively. After his marriage to Orihime, Hikoboshi idled away and didn’t work. An angry god split Hikoboshi and Orihime apart from the two banks of the Milky Way. However the god permitted Hikoboshi and Orihime to reunite once a year on July 7. So Tanabata is held on that day every year, and it is said to be the day lovers can reunite. (translated from Japanese to English in Japan)

The romantic in me loves that there is a day set aside for “lost love/s/ers” There is always a place in my heart for someone who has brought me pleasure, shown me kindness, taken time to get to know me, spend time with me. In today’s “throw away” society/culture, we often forget that each moment we live/experience life… that moment is etched in our “being”. To know sadness, we have had to have experienced happiness. Love is in every breath we take, it is like the air we breathe. Unseen but ever present.

Always and Forever
