A door to the world





 Open the door
to access the new
to find possibilities
changing your view

 Let go of the past
which isn't useful for today
leave it behind closed doors
Go and enter a new way



Open the door to your heart
where you find passion
and learn how to paint
 in the colours of compassion


If your whole world rocks
and all falls apart
one door will still stand strong
the door towards a new start


Always leave the door
wide open to your inner child
make life a celebration
let your imagination run wild



Open up to the beauty
of all that is around
love all the living beings
embrace, day in day out

  5. You selected some very special doors, and your accompanying words were perfect.
    Today France became the 14th country to approve a gay marriage law – the most populous country to do so. However there were some unfortunate protests from the conservative far-right. Paris overwhelmingly approved the law but homophobic Catholic super-conservatives from the provinces were bused to Paris to protest. I am pleased that the government did not listen to religious bigots. Just like in the US though, there is a strong vocal minority of religious conservatives like the Tea Party here, and they want to impose their views on the rest of the people. As a French citizen (I have dual citizenship) I am pleased that France did not listen to them but listened to tolerance.

  6. I am pleased that France listened to tolerance and that it became the 14th country! Great Just sad that it has to go like that. Thanks for the update

  13. You've got a wonderful collection of doors. They all have a secret to hide and a story to tell.
    Thanks for your comment! Yes everything is slowly colouring orange now. The baker has orange cookies and cakes with orange icing. The florist has a great selection of orange flowers and vases. We are all waiting for the "big" day!

  17. These doors are truly exquisite, Marja, and as symbolism powerful. The last photo with young women sitting reminds me that doors are all around us should we choose to open them. And I particularly liked the lines: “If your whole world rocks and all falls apart … one door will still stand strong … the door towards a new start.”

  20. Great poetry and those pictures of the doors are works of art. The picture of the door with all teh rubble around it is very foreboding to me.

  21. Marja, you can never know how apt this post is for me because of where I am in my life right now. I know I have to open doors to find new opportunities and move on but it's all a bit scary. The picture of the door in the rubble spoke the most to me. Thank you so much for posting these

  24. Hi Marja .. I love all of these - such a wonderful selection ... full of hope ... I'd love if it if our Spring would arrive properly .. frosts on the ground and a cold wind .. is a little tiresome!

    Cheers to you and keep warm and dry during your darker days of Autumn and Winter ... Hilary
