Every person, every place starts in the same way — new, pristine (even if only for a minute). Some never change. Some improve. And some, well, this happens. I can’t help but wonder why. What’s the story?
During my vacation last week, I trekked to Frenchtown, New Jersey (and shared Me, the Doors, and David Bowie for #ThursdayDoors). After perusing that borough, I crossed a narrow metal bridge over the Delaware River to Uhlerstown, Pennsylvania. This farmhouse sits on the road right as you land in the Keystone state.
I can’t help wondering what it looked like when it was fresh and new, when the glass windows were open with a slight breeze blowing the curtains, when the white door had a fresh coat of paint and opened often to welcome friends and neighbors. I also wonder who lived behind those walls and what their lives were like. I hope they didn’t fall apart the way the house seems to have.
If only walls could talk. What would the doors to the past of this structure, once opened, reveal?
