The week leading up to New Year’s Day tends to be a time of reflection as we prepare to ‘discard the old’ and ’embrace the new’.
I thought I would loosely follow that theme in my final Thursday Door post of the year by featuring a few old buildings that started out as schoolhouses – with one former church – and later re-purposed to a home.
In these cases, the ‘old’ wasn’t simply discarded but re-invented instead … something that I think many of us strive to do at this time of year.
These photos are more about the buildings and less about the doors.
As I look forward to the new year, I hope I’ll have the grace and resilience of these old buildings.
As far as the year that’s coming to a close, I am happy to say ‘good riddance’ and ‘don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out’.
Thursday Doors is a weekly photo feature hosted by Norm Frampton at Norm 2.0. Thanks Norm for another great year of doors!!
