Thursday Doors Reflecting

Time for Thursday Doors with a little bit of reflecting. 

This door has that beautiful reflection – the sun was setting, and the inside lights added to the glow (Richmond, VA)

A different type of reflecting with this old barber shop. Those corner doors are so nice – and here we can only see the gate and worn down vibe. I wonder what this place looked like when it was new and the area was thriving (Buffalo, NY)
Reflecting on how sometimes minor repairs can bring much stability (location unknown – ha)

So what have you been reflecting on lately?

    1. Hey Derrick – thanks for noticing the cyclist – I like his socks – and I took two photos of this door and this was my choice “because” of th cyclist and his stance – 🙂

  1. Reflecting and shining from within is a nice combination. I do wish you had a time machine so we could see that barber shop open and people milling around that corner door. Your street scenes are always interesting, Yvette. These are no exception. Thanks for joining us.

  2. Those reflections in the first photo are lovely, and I do love a corner door, especially a rounded corner. Excellent point, about minor changes making major differences. This post has given me a lot to reflect upon. Lately, during the quarantine and snowdump, I’ve been reflecting on the importance of distance communication: internet, telephone, and postal mail.

    1. Hi – thanks for the nice comment
      and two things
      first – you are having snow dump – we are on our second ice storm – whew – tickled february 🙂

      second –
      check out this Tal Ben Shahar video about Mental Strength
      go to the three minute mark where ha talks about how all this virtual connecting can be superficial or deep (your comment reminded me of this awesome vid)

      1. See? We’ve barely “met”, and only virtually, but you recommended a video that nourished and strengthened me. So I can’t consider that brief interchange as superficial, because you cared and I benefited. 🙂 I’m SO GLAD you visited my blog today and led me to what I call a Spark o’ Joy. 🙂

        1. Oh Mirian – that made my day – and reminds me of another reason why i like this here blog world – we find ways to connect with our long-time connections and then some new connections trickle in – and it just so happens I am “re-joining” Thursday doors after a hiatus – and so I happened to visit Dan’s blog before the hundreds of comments showed up – ha – and there was your link – and glad I clicked it – look what unfolded
          and thanks for taking the time to check out the video – I really like most of what Tal shares –
          okay 0 good day to you

  3. That first photo’s a winner, Yvette, with both a lovely building and a cyclist. 🙂 I never saw the appeal of waxing, I must admit. Sounds quite painful to me. I’ll stick with shaving.

    Since moving here, I’ve been reflecting on how to serve with grace. My parents are thrilled that we’re here and that’s why we moved and I’m happy to be able to have the time to help them in a variety of ways. Sometimes, though, I find myself wishing they wouldn’t call every day or assume that I have the time to help yet again. To be fair, they’re not asking me to do things every day at all, but between helping them and the regular tasks around the house and yard, I sometimes would just love a day where I have no obligations. 🙂 Writing it down makes it sound much bigger and much worse than it really is, but you asked what we’d been reflecting about and that’s one of the things.

    1. thanks janet for the comment on thre doors and the rreflecijg in your life!
      and whew – that new life mode will truoy take some tweaking and in regular intervals you will have to likely keep assessing – like what is working and what is not working for this season (or month)
      and we have to do this when we visit family – the rounds we make – how long we visit for (awesome but can be taxing too)
      and so i can just imagine how much more is needed when you live there now

      and side note about the photo – i was actually going for the tattoo parlor door because years ago i met with a friend (i taught her girls art and we became friends but then they moved uo north) and one day when she was back in town – we met in this area and got coconut drinks from somewhere else and sat there are chatted – it was special for a few reasons
      – ahhhh – good times
      have a nice day if your day and ttys

  4. Oh, I wished they wouldn’t let get buildings to such a state as in your second capture – so sad ….! My reflections (and also doing them) lately have been on getting better with watercolors, ever since I saw at Barnes and Nobles art magazines with very bright colors and strong contrasts.

  5. Of course the photographer has to be given credit for capturing the great reflextion. Oh sad about the barber shop closing which is what we keep seeing.
    Stability… looking for that. Nice job Yvete!

  6. These two doors on the storefronts couldn’t be more different – the decay of the barber shop is sad. Probably was a hoppin’ place at one time … a place to hang out and read old magazines, talk sports and cars while getting your ears lowered. I’ll bet they even had a striped barber pole.
