The Door to Memories

A door out of time

A door out of time

If you recognize the door handle in this photograph, you might be older than dirt… or living in a very old house.

This door seemed totally out of place in the beachfront rental home we stayed at on Edisto Beach in South Carolina. It was the only one like it in the entire house that included eight bedrooms and six bathrooms.

As soon as I saw it, I was transported back to the house I grew up in. While our front, back, and cellar doors had been updated with newer (?) technology, all the other doors in the house had key holes similar to the one in the photo. One could, if one so desired, peek through the keyhole to see what was going on in the room on the other side of the door. You might not get a complete view of the room but, as a child, whatever you could see was still exciting!

If we ever get smell-o-vision on the Internet, I’ll begin to introduce aromas that make my mind go wandering back to the old days. In the meantime, I’ll continue to show you pictures from time to time.
