The trick is in figuring out whether a slow-to-open door will never open or will open with enough focus, patience, passion, and experience. ;-D! Often great treasures can be found behind doors that don’t easily open but call to us anyway. And I’ve learned much from doors I never did find a way to open no matter what I tried. The door that does not open may indeed not be my door, but the lessons it offers can be.
With Love,

I didn't have my glasses on....

  1. Yeah there are some amazing things behind doors that are slow to open

  2. Well, you are a wise man. I love LOOKING at doors, and should take photos of them, since they’re so seductive to me. But as a writer I wonder, ‘what’s behind that door?’ As a human being, I wonder, ‘can that door be opened?’ (Yes, a slow-opening door may be just what we need, huh?)

      Thank you for your kind and interesting comment. I too, am intrigued by doors and gates, their beauty and mystery, what they represent, and sometimes their challenge.
