Doorways are possibilities

woodwork doors

The problem with doorways is that you may never know what’s on the other side until you go through them.  These beautiful, carved wooden doors could hold a gigantic mansion with servants and drivers and nannies.  These beautiful, carved wooden doors could hold an abandoned, run-down, shack with squatters.  You’ll never know until you step through the door.  Oh…you can guess at it, try to look  over the wall, but at some point, in order to really understand, you need to go through the door.  Or, you can settle with never knowing.

Possibilities are like that.  You never know exactly what you get until you walk through the door.

It’s how I ended up in Jakarta, taking photos of beautiful, carved wooden doors.  I stepped through.

    I didn’t know a philosopher lived within you! I’m learning to know you so much better by reading your photo journals. Great photos and great thoughts.
