“Eyes are Windows, Doors are Portals” by @GailGreenDesign

More inspiration from another fabulous person I met on Twitter, Gail Green…..

Similarly to “the eyes being the windows of the soul,” doors are the portals of the house through which one experiences a change of landscape, an insight into the beyond.  Not exactly an “Alice in Wonderland” experience, but a transformative one, where the homeowner sighs with relief that they have finally arrived – home!  Doors, whether entry or interior, create this passage, where the individual unhinges from his daily toils and enters another world, hopefully one of comfort and sometimes of surprise.  That, I suppose, is the “Wonderland” feature of doors; we are never quite sure what lies on the other side.  Doors create the “aha” moment for the perceiver, the rites de passage for the bride and groom, who symbolically cross over into another world, the unexpected.  And, more often than not, doors are the happy symbol of a welcome home and the life therein it represents.
