Doors- A back door to God’s House


I had been mooching around the great cathedral of Rochester and found in the back this small door. It’s barely five foot high. What impressed me about this little door, was not the carved peak of the door, but the stonework required to make the opening for the door. Quite a bit of planning. It’s a great little door, very solid and the iron hinges are just stunning. Wouldn’t mind this as my back door!

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

  1. I love this door–and the idea that it was painstakingly created–as a metaphor. I’ve been through it often, as an introvert and contrarian who has trouble using God’s front door.

    Did you notice that in order to get in G-d house you need a key to get in, unless the door is always open , nevertheless it has no handle.

    I’d have to duck 9″ every time…. 🙂

  4. I just love the shape, Susan – and I agree with you about the hinges!

    what an interesting and delightful door! Wouldn’t it be an amusing thought if you used as a dog door for teddy?:D

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
