  1. Enter or Exit
    A door does not have to be a physical barrier. Not an original thought of course, but one to rethink. Everything we do or say is either entering or exiting. Opening or shutting.

    And when we see a door that says: KEEP OUT! We want to break it down. lol

  2. What an unusual find this is! How can the tree still stand upright with such a tremendous bit missing right where it must hurt? It’s like an amputation….. and the stem looks sort of empty too – so is it just a shell of a tree?
    We have a saying that ‘if a door closes, God opens a window…. I never heard that one by Willard and I am not yet sure I agree. To me answers are door openers to cries from the inside to help, at least to open the shutters…. isn’t it interesting what we hear when we hear something?

  3. Far be it for me to want to spoil anyone’s imagination, since I myself would have stuck a fairy bed in there myself, but I will say that this tree has lost it’s co-dominant trunk. It’s other have likely split off during a storm or from disease, hence leaving the door for new companions to come.
