QUOTE: I have a respect for doors. If you have an old,
attractive, handmade door, you can always hope to get a
house to fasten on to it. There are other uses, too. A
door is something to open wide when a friend comes;
something to close against cold, or emptiness, or grudges.
It is something to slam in anger; relieving your spirit, or
hang a Christmas wreath from, or close in exquisite
gentleness in time of sorrow. A door is symbloical of
something within yourself that you can close to avoid
wounding a friend or being wounded by one; or when you are
unwiling to strike back in agnry, justice, thus setting a
stone between yourself and your friend that both of you will
have to step over for the rest of your lives. There are
times when nothing in the world is as profoundly satisfying
as simply closing a door. ~ Rural Free: A Farmwife's
