doors in calcata

doors in calcata
Originally uploaded by heathero.
calcata is an amazing little town built into a rock high up in italy... i visited there one sunday and i felt like i had traveled back in time and the day was much too short... i dream of returning to hike through the woods and throw pots and eat good food... a place far removed from the world..

my heart has changed since i took this photo and these doors that were closed have the possibility of opening... should i open them? would l like what i find inside? would i be disappointed? if i do open these doors, and of course you see that they are not really these doors, i must do so with absolutely no expectation, only with the idea of the moment, living purely in the moment, and not look for anything beyond the moment. throw away all ideas of security and future and promise and just take what is inside for what is is. that could actually be a beautiful thing, living in the moment with no expectation. i mean, what promise do we really have of a tomorrow?? so the question is, am i setting myself up for hurt or do i open these doors without exopecation, knowing that the end result could be heartache...

I believe that that people should live in the moment with no expectation... but that's only my point of view! But it can be hurtful too in many cases... oh deaar, why does it have to be so complicated sometimes, eh?

Thanks for stopping by my blog btw... on my way to blogroll you! *winks!

I agree with Allie, people should live in the moment without expectation. I'm working harder to take that advise.

Tough one... I guess I pretty much agree with all of the above. Best thing is to live the present and seize the moment. There's no need to look back to what you've been, or done... no need to look to much into the future, 'cuz sometimes it can be quite painful.
You can open that door... just do it at your own pace. You don't have to see everything inside, you can just take a little glimpse for a quick idea... but in any case, just do as your heart tells you... *big hugs*
