The Doors



Do you ever daydream and wonder what could have happened if you'd left the house just 1 minute later? Maybe you avoided a horrible accident or missed running into someone you really didn't want to see by only a minute. I totally do this. What really got me thinking about this, is the movie, "Sliding Doors" with Gwyneth Paltrow. In life, we have opportunities that are presented to us like doors. Sometimes, we walk through them and other times, we walk the other way. I sometimes wonder what could have been if I'd done this and not done that. How different would the outcome (life) really be? Because the doors we choose to open not only affect our own path, but the paths of everyone we encounter. Of course, these are the metaphorical doors for change, chance, and opportunity. Here are some other doors that are worth checking out:

In feng shui, a red door brings good luck into the home...


A yellow door is a cheery entrance...


A blue door in Mykonos, Greece...


A modern sliding door...


A Miami style villa in London with glass sliding walls bring the outdoors in...


Double stainless steel doors...


And of course, The Doors chillin at the Morrison Hotel, 1246 Hope Street in Downtown LA. Circa 1970...

Very touching blog...sometimes I think about if 10/2 had never happened my life would have turned out totally different and I wouldn't have had my wonderful children and now my grandkiddies.

Oh, The Doors, chillin' in DTLA, that's the way I like my Doors! Did we both really just do music posts at the same time? I haven't been reading my blogs as frequently, swear I had no idea when I posted on vinyl today!
