“When I was a girl, my life was music that was always getting louder. 

Everything moved me. A dog following a stranger. That made me feel so much. A calendar that showed the wrong month. I could have cried over it. I did. Where the smoke from a chimney ended. How an overturned bottle rested at the edge of a table.

I spent my life learning to feel less.
Every day I felt less.
Is that growing old? Or is it something worse?
You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” 

-Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Behind closed doors.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I have a thing for exteriors. It's more than just pretty doors, windows and walls to me. I'm drawn to the imperfect details, the story I imagine is written on them. I often wonder what the history behind those closed doors are. What kind of life the people behind them leads. If they are happy. What their struggles are. What they think of the world outside.
