Every wall is a door...

“Every wall is a door.” Ralph Waldo Emerson


There will always be obstacles. But I think perhaps Mr. Emerson is correct when he suggests seeing them as opportunities... Possibilities.


It's an interesting quote because he doesn't say barriers are an " open" door. I think he's saying I have to see the barrier as possibility and I have to go about opening the door myself.


After all, a door does not open by itself.


An unopened door -- one I assume I can not open -- might as well be a wall.


This picture was take in Cape May. NJ. At the end of some hallways in the Grand Hotel there are glass doors and this one was oceanside. I took this picture from inside the hotel. That week end it stormed endlessly... I suppose some people would have shoved their camera back in luggage cursing the weather but I got some great pictures that week-end that I still use.


I guess you could say I took a wall, saw a door...and opened it
