Doors

I bought a new issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry today. One of the featured artists' is Lori Wilkes.
As I was looking through her Web site, she had a section of pieces called Metaphoric Doors. She writes beautifully about doors (her doors are beautiful also), and I quote her:

"Doors are a perfect metaphor for change. Like chapters in a book, they provide us with fresh beginnings and intriguing endings. They swing open to future possibilities and close quietly on past (and sometimes painful) experiences. Doors can protect us, entice us, mystify us and make us pause. It's amazing how much of our lives are lived between the opening and closing of doors."

After posting my poem on doors earlier today, and then reading this, I feel like there is some kind of synchronicity. I feel there is a new door opening in my life, and have been feeling this way for a while. There is something awaiting me on a path that I have yet to explore, but am getting ready for. I am eagerly looking forward to the change!

what a great post! I think doors open and close all the time in life, don't you? I think mine is actually one of those revolving doors...lol! this gives me something to think about...

Well, I think that is what life is all about. I always say when one door closes another opens. The problem sometimes is two doors open and you have to decide which one to go through.

I just can't help but think your next path will have something to do with your art. Maybe teaching or some kind of therapy using art.

XX, Carol

What a beautiful poem. Haunting to me. For me in my predicament, it's sometimes easy to think most doors are closed. Not true. I love your pentameter. THanks for encouraging me.
For you, it's exciting to think where your path will lead. I look forward to going with you.
