It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

The Doors

Did you ever daydream about just walking into a building or a house because you just like it ? Or because the door is so grand or beautiful or inviting ?
There is something mysterious or compelling about the place and you would just like to wander around for a while, maybe sit and contemplate the surroundings ?
I do. Often.
I live in a town where the doors are works of art.
There are walls around the homes and sometimes all you can see is the beautiful gate and the roof showing beyond the high walls.
There are buildings with doors that are so grand and so ornate, the rooms inside must be wonderful !
I wish they did Home Tours here. I would go on every one of them !
Funny, when we were house hunting, none of the homes we looked at had any interest at all to me, except this one, the one we bought.
And wouldn't you know, we have a very ornate , beautiful door to our building.
Did Confucius ever say anything about doors ? I bet he did.,
Or Buddha, bet he had something to say about doors.

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.
