Door to somewhere

External view of the decorative doors to the courtyard at St. Francis Barracks, St. Augustine, Florida. The balloons were there to identify where birthday party attendees would enter.

As part of the Thursday Doors emphasis, I thought it would be neat to post these decorative doors at the historic St. Francis Barracks in St. Augustine, Florida.

It reminds me of how doors lead to opportunities instead of shutting one out – if one has a key.

Where is your somewhere, and through what doors to you need to travel?

  1. Those are very attractive doors but, staying on the philosophical theme, not all attractive doors lead to attractive places. Where is my somewhere? Our actual place of residence will be changing in about a year, but my somewhere is a) wherever our home is and b) our place in the Wyoming mountains. Then there’s also wherever I might be traveling. πŸ˜‰

    1. True Janet. Some lead to the inside and and the same time to the outside. Regardless, they all lead to somewhere. Sometimes we don’t know if the place is attractive until we open the door. It looks like you have excellent doors opening before you. πŸ˜‰

  2. Beautiful door from San Augustine – and I have been there -.
    I love your ur comment: ” It reminds me of how doors lead to opportunities instead of shutting one out – if one has a key. “.

    Important to be aware of as we have to pass through many.
    Thank you

  3. We hear the saying ‘ when one door closes another door opens’. Years ago when married, four children under 10, husband and I wanted to follow what we thought was a calling. The door wasn’t readily open and barriers were there so we squeezed through a window. Big Mistake. The place we went to was dysfunctional, toxic and abusive. The marriage became like that as well so it eventually ended resulting in terrible effects on the children. The lesson I learnt was if the door is not widely opened it is not for me.

    1. Excellent points. I’m sorry you had those negative experiences. We learn from them each time and continue on the best we can, armed with more insight and experience. πŸ™‚
