Hello on Thursday! This is the door I’ve tried to get to for the last month or so. I remember when this house was occupied and the welcoming decorations that adorned the door in years past.
I chanced the drive up the long drive way, but no… there was no way I could closer or move the brush to take a clear picture of the door. Such is life, it looks like the homes on the next door lot have also been purchased, and are being left to… waste away as the weather does its work on them.
Eventually the contractor will come, tear them down, some new buildings will go in, condos, or another type of multiple family building, with little to no green space for the children to play. It is happening all over, I’m sure not only in our city.
A door was often a welcoming part of the home, during times of celebrations, or events, they would be a place to decorate, with festive colours and maybe even a banner. Welcoming guests, just being plain neighbourly. People know their neighbours, children played with each other, learned about how each lived. Learned to respect and enjoy another’s culture if it was different from their own, and even if it was similar, no two families were carbon copies of the other.
My doors today, have had life take over, and are no longer the symbol of welcome they once were. Please, visit Norm 2.0 for his blog and a link to other Thursday Doors
Does your door open to new possibilities, on a regular basis?
Every day we are blessed with new opportunities. For a healthy life, it is our responsibility to keep our passage way/doorway uncluttered.
