The Door is the Window to the Soul

C door 2

Photo taken by contributor Lisa Day, a woman who lives with anxiety disorder, PTSD, depressive disorder and mild bipolar. She recalls being ‘melancholy’ for most of her life, but things progressively got worse until she felt suicide was her only solution. The very night she planned her “great escape” she was contacted by the father of a friend and he changed her life. They eventually married but she still has terrible ups and downs. She keeps him constantly looking for creative ways to help and she believes she would not be here without him. One of the things he has really encouraged her to do is take photographs and to write. She has four blogs….including one dedicated to her photography and another dedicated to surviving her mind.

About this photo: “I love this photo of the Catalina tile and the door. I believe the door of a house is really the door or window to it’s soul….a door can say “go away” or “come on in.” It can say I have a story to tell or I have nothing to say.”

  1. God had a plan for you not to die that night. I find sharing my own pictures connects me to something bigger than myself, even if I don’t make friends-I feel connected; to people and to God. Did you take the picture in Catalina? I was blessed to go there as a child. I like the Two Harbors side-quieter and more natural.
