FriendDoors – GB and IU #ThursdayDoors

As Dan Antion says, it’s good to have friends who enable one’s doordiction.

Friend and fellow writer Andrea Gilbey sent me these beauties from Cheshunt, England, Great Britain, saying,

A couple of doors for you! From the Cheshunt parish church of St Mary the Virgin.
Here’s a link to a bit of history of the church. This is where I used to read at the school Carol service every year. Always the bit about the Angel Gabriel appearing to the Shepherds. 7 years I read that – I still know it by heart. ??

And friend and fellow writer Mildred Perkins sent me these from IU Bloomington, Indiana, USA, saying,

This is from the building I work in. It pre-dates Hitler’s Germany btw.Β The same patterned tiles are on the floor, too, somewhat run down after a hundred years.

Thursday Doors is the brainchild of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, enjoy his photographs, click on the blue frog link, and enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about an old and well-preserved building.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Thanks for the mention. It’s wonderful the way door fever spreads. Good friends enable us (for good stuff like doors).

      I thought borrowing money was what friends are for. Uh, I mean, YES, supplying us with door photos is totally what friends are for! I’ve passed your compliments along. πŸ™‚

  3. That tile is somethin else! Great share to great share on her behalf πŸ™‚
    The church doors are beautiful in that worn wood way I love. The annunciation bit? Was that you? πŸ˜‰ Behold an angel said unto her…. No, really, doesn’t it start with Greetings! and then like, “God favors you”?

      That was Andrea, not I. “Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou among women” is how the Rosary puts it.
