THE DOOR – PART 4

I see a door as a metaphor for making a choice to leave or stay. And choices are empowering. Doors go out and also go in. A door can lead to somewhere unknown – scary at first, but also beautiful. Continue reading

THE DOOR – PART 2

Originally my last line of my song was, “I walked out the door.” A door is not only a metaphor for leaving, but also for entering. So instead of saying “walk out the door” I decided my last line would be “I went through the door.” And you don’t know what’s on the other side! Continue reading

WHEN THE CLOSET IS BARE

Lately, I was struggling because my door seemed overwhelming. With my eyesight compromised, everything was harder. Although I knew it was courageous, going through the front door to end my marriage was probably the biggest step I’d ever taken in my entire life. It was hard to be patient with my eyesight.

I couldn’t think of moving until all of my eye surgeries were behind me. But once I went through my door, I would be leaving the pain behind that confronted and assaulted me on a daily basis.
