“I’ve got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.”
― Louisa May Alcott
I always lock my door,
not to keep people out,
although that too sometimes,
but to make sure that I remember to take my key,
when leaving the house.
I do this because when I didn’t,
I would cross the threshold and merrily shut the door behind me,
only to afterwards be struck by the thought that,
I had forgotten something,
which I only remembered when I tried to get back in.
The next object in our Objectivity challenge,
is the key,
which is very symbolic for us at this time,
as we have just received the keys to a new experience.
I hope I don’t lock myself out inadvertently,
due to being always a little gleefully green.
“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
― Frederick Buechner
