Doors. An opening to opportunity. A sign of a welcome home.
Unless a door is vivid and obvious, most don’t regard a door as much beyond just that; a door. Oh but bold, bright doors call to us. Make us notice the possibilities. Red doors scream, “Look at me! Come in. Se what is exciting beyond me.”
I am always curious what is beyond a bright door.
Doors with a window to see in are calling for us to glance in and take a peek into the lives of whoever resides within. They are welcoming.
Dark, solid doors worry me. They are grim and foreboding. I avoid dark doors.
Doors with a knocker call to my mind the image of either a grand old lady or a household of affluence and elegance. You don’t see many doors with a knocker, but they are so elegant. They make that solid door less foreboding because they are calling for you to approach to see who’s inside. They are welcoming in their elegance.
