On this side of the door lies opportunity, growth. Billions of souls scurrying about, learning of loneliness, pride; experiencing isolation, jealousy, HUMILITY and joy, slowly realizing the immutable law of love. Time expands in these shadows, all we once understood IS clouded; held in the frailty of human living. All slows down to A lesser pace, freeing us to make each connection anew, creating ownership of each delicate idea. Beyond the doorway, in a small, QUIET, unassuming way is embossed the word “Entrance”. It is inescapable. Homeward, I will step under its arch again. Will I do so with a mind full of regret or a heart full of LOVE? That is all I have to decide.
