Zen Tuesday: #3



On Zen Monday you experience the photo then tell me what it's about, rather than me telling you what to experience from viewing it. Because yesterday was theme day, t
his week Zen Monday is Tuesday.

The Zen photos will now be numbered instead of titled, so as to leave more to the imagination.

the half empty door,
or maybe it is half full.
Fall... or still summer?

Knoxville Girl said...

When we last left KG, she was pondering closed doors and looking for an open window. Now here is a door with a window and she is sorely confused.
She is also writing about herself in the 3rd person, which is disturbing her greatly.
Also, Laurie does lovely haiku.

This is how it looks when you're in the nursery class at sunday school.

Smells of sea air and pine-sol
squeaky floors
musty carpets
little plastic chairs
Hi-C and saltines

Lily Hydrangea said...

The view into the outside looks promising making me want to find that door so I can pull up the shade and let in all of the light.

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

It's a very hospitable exit with the foliage just outside and a shade on the door. The interior is now empty but will be full for upcoming classes?

Kelly said...

Laurie always makes me laugh!

...Looking around, she found she'd indeed walked in through the out door, and to her horror, was wearing only her raspberry beret, the kind you find in a second-hand store...

Trish said...

The person outside the door ran out so quickly the shade only shut 1/2 way and the rug rolled right up with all that energy going out the door. Outside, we see a tent being put up right under the telephone wires.

Perhaps a post-quake picture from the perspective of the couch which is stuck inside still. Or perhaps someone in the path of Gustav, blocking the door with the rug, setting up a tent outside because the house is not habitable.

Either way, it seems not complete.

That exit is entrance …

I flunked haikus in school so I can't even jump in on that action. I will just say that I think the angle this was shot from (were you lying on the floor? you go girl!) is what makes this such an intriguing photo. Think about it shot at eye level - boring. Well done Petrea as always.

D.C. Confidential said...

I don't know why, but the saying "You must be present to win" enters my mind.

Great photo and very thought provoking...

The screen pull with the bakelite ring looks like something from my grandmother's era. It reminds me of my grandmother and the smell of lilac.

I know this door,
Ive been in the room every week,
I never noticed the transom.

JM said...

I really like you Zen pictures, Petrea!

Christie said...

There is the doorway,
It stands in the waning light.
Do you have to go?

Petrea said...

I can't tell you how much I love this.

I know what the photo is, but it just doesn't matter, does it? All that matters is what you see.

Thank you, keep 'em coming!

altadenahiker said...

What is that woman doing? Is she playing golf? Fishing? I must pull the shade and stop spying.

Susan C said...

Virginia, I thought the same thing about the angle. I couldn't figure out where Petrea was perched when she shot it.

Ms M said...

Doorway into another world, or another perception...
Exit doesn't mean you can't come back in, especially when it begins to rain

USelaine said...

Winston longed for greater olfactory connection with his woman, but, cruelly, a rolled floormat blocked the draft from outside. But he could see her, and in that sight felt some fulfillment of his compulsive devotion. Her last words to him, seemingly ages ago, were: sit, stay. And he did.

Irina Netchaev said...

Ooh... I like this idea... let's see... open the door to a sun filled garden. There's a picnic laid out under an oak tree (there absolutely has to be food AND loads of dark chocolate.) Of course, there's a creek somewhere in the background. :-)

life observer said...

I thought I already commented on this.
It's been a weird day. A Monday that feels like a Tuesday,...

Ok, uuuh, this is what is typically seen when someone is leaving an audition!

I gotta get 2 sleep.

Therese said...

An anti-zen door!

Do you have to go?

Zen days are my favorites, not just because I don't have to write anything, but because you're all so interesting and creative. Thank you so much for contributing to Zen Tuesday! Next week I believe we're back to our regularly scheduled Monday festivities.
