Last week, I shared eight doors from my walk to the Javits Center in New York City and from there to The Molly Wee Pub. I had almost 30 doors to choose from, because walking in New York is a series of: “Oooh that’s a nice door” – “That’s an interesting door” – “Oooh a blue door” and like that. Although I have made this particular walk on numerous occasions, for the most part, only the start and end points remain the same. Every intersection is a new choice.
Sometimes, I like the door itself. Sometimes, though, I’m attracted by the business behind the door and what it tells me about everyday life in one of the world’s largest and busiest cities. I think you can see, it’s not all Uber and Blue Apron. So, while many of these are ordinary doors, I like the story they tell.
As for me, I didn’t tell a story last week. I appreciate all the well wishes you guys have left in the comments. I’m feeling pretty good, but whatever this crud is that I have it’s hanging onto my sinuses. I’ve been working this week, but I also stopped to see a doctor. She said, “give it 10 days,” so far, it’s only been 8. If this stuff is still here on Friday, we bring out the big guns.
Speaking of doctors, this fun blogfest is brought to you by Norman Frampton, Thd. Doctor of Thursday Doors. Norm has studied doors for years, and currently runs the Frampton Institute for Advanced Door Studies in Montreal, Canada. To feed the institute’s enormous appetite for doors for study, Norm personally solicits door aficionados from around the world to deliver doors to him on a weekly basis. If you want to contribute, assemble your door collection and then head to the institute’s main loading dock. The little blue frog will check your manifest and assign you the necessary storage.
