      • Oh, an interesting tidbit.My Dad built his own house in Nova Scotia. It was common behaviour in our culture to use the side door from the driveway as an entrance all the time. When financing a build, the bank released the funds for labor and materials in stages – each stage having requirements that had to be met before the next round of funds were released. The last payment required that the front stairs be attached as per the architect’s drawings and be operable. ha! So many were taking the final funds and leaving off the front stairs, they had to make that a requirement. Even today, if you drive through areas where homes were built by owners you will notice that only about half the front doors have any stairs to them. It remanded me of that when I saw your door with no stairs.

  1. We spend more time trying to force certain doors open – and not trying ones we could turn the knob to – that we forget what’s meant for us. Beautiful reminder. Not all doors are meant for our passing, are they beth?

  2. The trick is in figuring out whether a slow-to-open door will never open or will open with enough focus, patience, passion, and experience. ;-D! Often great treasures can be found behind doors that don’t easily open but call to us anyway. And I’ve learned much from doors I never did find a way to open no matter what I tried. The door that does not open may indeed not be my door, but the lessons it offers can be.

  4. Sometimes the hardest to open doors hold the most treasured things behind them, sometimes they hide monsters who want to jump out and make you scream and then tickle you because it is fun to hear nanna scream
