Doorways of tomorrow

We all stand at the threshold 
to the doorway of tomorrow;
On the other side
awaits a wondrous ride;
where dreams are sure to follow…

Botany 3.0

O WERE my Love yon lilac fair,
Wi’ purple blossoms to the spring,
And I a bird to shelter there,
When wearied on my little wing;
How I wad mourn when it was torn
By autumn wild and winter rude!
But I wad sing on wanton wing
When youthfu’ May its bloom renew’d.

O gin my Love were yon red rose
That grows upon the castle wa’,
And I mysel a drap o’ dew,
Into her bonnie breast to fa’;
O there, beyond expression blest,
I’d feast on beauty a’ the night;
Seal’d on her silk-saft faulds to rest,
Till fley’d awa’ by Phoebus’ light.
– Robert Burns

Doorways of the World

People who know me well, know that I love a good door. Big, small, flat, knobbly, wood, metal, brightly coloured, old and peeling, leading to interesting places or leading nowhere at allI love them all! It’s a bit weird, to be honest. But I’m going to bore you with some of my favourites of recent years anyway
