Doors Closed, Eyes Open


“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us”

– Alexander Graham Bell

The first part of this quote is almost a cliché.

It is, fortunately for us, very often true.

The second part is a wisdom to bear in mind though.

I can personally attest to lingering at closed doors ,thus missing out on openings, but I have learnt over time to quickly look elsewhere when something just isn’t to be .

The photo is of some of the most impressive doors in my bag of pictures, just to remind myself that a beautiful closed door is still just a closed door…
