The Ins and Outs of Doors


The Way Out

So ordinary. So commonplace. We unthinkingly walk through them all day most days. Doors. Through them we enter and exit. We go to and from. We open and close.

Doors serve as metaphors for meaning. We know them to be thresholds between the no longer and the not yet. They mark important life cycles. They signify transition and even transformation.

Photographically I have not met a door I have not liked. Here is a peek at some of the doors that have called my name.

    Each of these doors opens story potential deep inside of me. Most I would approach with a sense of caution for what was on the other side.
    Others feel like doors I have closed in my life and I am intrigued, but reluctant to look back at ‘what happened after I left’ the situation. The red door makes me want to sit and stare at it, almost waiting for sounds to emerge from the silent hinges. For some reason the Enter With Care draws me right to the crevice of darkness with a semi smile on my face. More intrigue than fear. I believe this week I will be drawn to many doors to test my inner sanctum responses. Thanks for the inspiration.
