Behind Closed Doors
Texture Tuesday Theme: OPEN
The door at 427 Fourth. One that begs to be opened. I am curious as to what lies beyond.
I know it’s not a very imaginative or unique interpretation of the theme. But I was struck by the way the morning sunlight fell across this entryway; the beautiful balanced symmetry of the attending columns; the rounded arch and golden brickwork. It looks like a place to call home, doesn’t it? An elegant, inviting portal into a world of warmth and comfort.
Do you imagine the lives lived behind closed doors? The dreams dreamed, hearts broken and mended, promises kept, tears and laughter shared. The light left on; the dinners warmed and coffee brewed.
The loneliness, the love; the anger and forgiveness. The important occasions marked and small moments shared.
All the stuff of life. An invitation to be open to it; to share it. Here, together.
