It's a door ...

If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present. 
(Rabindranath Tagore)
In the movie, Temple Grandin, when presented with a door, she walked through it, no matter how scary it was -- or found another way. (By the way, if you have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it!)

I like that first quote so much. I flipped my calendar from October to November today (yes, I know, it's November 14th!!) and that was the quote printed on a red door. I love doors -- the hardware, the color, the intricacies, the locks, etc. When I see a really old door or a door that is different looking, I sometimes think, "Who walked through that door?" or "Who touched the handle? Or turned the lock?" 
Maybe you're faced with a door to choose from. Maybe a door needs to be carved out of something else. Maybe a door needs to be closed or slammed shut. Whatever it is, I do know that something terrific will come --  even though the "present" might not be dark at all.
Here's to walking through the next door!
