If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door – Milton Berle
Rombuk, Tibet. June 2007
Sometimes doors are opened for you however the doors I’ve opened for myself are the ones where I have gained the most out of what was on the other side. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel quite a bit and I often took photos of doors and windows, sometimes it was because I could glimpse something through them but often not -I was always fascinated by ancient doors and windows. Who had been through them, looked out of them? What were their hopes and dreams?
With a door in front of us we have a choice to make. Do you choose to create opportunities?
This one’s for you Diana, thanks for the post today!
Whenever I hand stitch anything, I invariably lose a needle somewhere and you can guess how I find it. Pretty predictable eh? So I now use a pincushion – and not just any pincushion. This one is from Thailand, I bought it in a local market from a woman who spoke no English (and my Thai is somewhat limited). It is made entirely by hand out of recycled materials and I love it. It reminds of my years living there, the wonderful friends I made and the travelling we did together – just by looking at a pincushion I know I’m truly blessed.
