Three Muses - Door

MIXED MESSAGES!  Surely this door has a story to tell.  Once it's sign welcomed all visitors; now they're warned to keep out.  What happened between welcome and warning?  Who was the last to lift the knocker now rusted and forlorn?  Old houses, old doors, old windows always fascinate me.  They leave me wondering what stories they could tell of the lives they shuttered; what hopes, fears, laughter, and tears.   To me they're like the cliff dwellings of the ancients, holding their secrets forever, while new generations live out their stories behind new doors and windows in the relentless march of time.   Thanks for taking time to share my fascination.

  1. I agree you, Bev, they are interesting. Doors are full of secrets. All are not happy ones.
    Your texture of the door is beautiful. Love what you put on it.
