All in Good Time- Friday’s door


The past, the present and a hint of the future – this is how we are created over time. We only know what is beyond a door by pulling on it’s old hinges and walking over it’s threshold. These actions often come with feelings of eagerness and hesitation. 

All in good time… until then may you find blessing in the beauty of new growth and the strength of steps taken before you.


Door of the day… (Vezelay, France)

Monday’s door 


How easy it is to ‘hit the ground running’ on a Monday morning. In God’s wisdom we are not responsible for the rising of the sun! The day moves ahead with its own rhythm while we easily focus on our own busy schedules. 

As hurried as your pace may be, take note of creation’s ‘schedule’. A moment of gratitude can be good for the soul.

A door for today…
The color blue is often calming. I chose this door for just that reason. The stairs draw one’s attention with ease. The invitation to enter is extended without hesitation.
See where your day could offer a sense of invitation. Note where you feel invited. You may be surprised – all of creation waits.

“One can’t believe impossible things,” Alice said. “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Side by side

Doors that are similar but different standing side-by-side. Together they stand strong with their paint bright and bold. Complementing one another.

No two doors are the same as is true with humans. I am not always comfortable with someone different than myself. Yet I realize our differences joined together become our strengths.

May we rise above any the discomfort and fear of our differences. May we learn to join together bright and bold.

Door of transition

from one transition to another. it takes a flexibility that can sometimes push the limit. be gentle with yourself as you move through these transitions. you are not alone. we all face unexpected and challenging doorways – even when they are beautiful. remember to breath.

Bigging it up

The smallest of things… (thank you, David Kanigan)

Live & Learn

The Pantheon of Smallness was a way of thinking about smallness differently. Sometimes we make small things, sometimes there are small bird songs, but it can have an enormous impact. Sometimes you have to whisper to be heard. Our culture is very much one of “bigging it up,” always upping the noise level in order to produce a louder signal. What you see in the bird world is sometimes that the smallest tweet can actually pierce through the cacophony in a different way. That became a metaphor for thinking about art. Emily Dickinson did quite miniature work that had a very profound, almost epic, impact, culturally speaking.
