Thursday Doors 1/12/22: Remains of 2021

“What technology would you be better off without, why?” Did WordPress just ask you the same question? 😮 As I opened a new post, there it was, this question to start things off. What next, WP? Will you write the ending for me too?

I will not think of technology, nor indeed about the Dallas Masochists because they are making them, us and all who watch them suffer so very much, and I’m sorry if I’ve made you watch them for Luka. Their game as a team is lost in translation. They lose unless he scores 32 points (and sometimes even if he scores more). Let’s hope it’s only early days (even though one quarter of the season is gone).

What I will do, in the time when photographers are coming up with their 2023 Calendars, is show you some doors from 2021 that didn’t make it into my monthly calendar posts. Each contains only twenty images but I always gather more than that. Here are some remains then.

And in two weeks I will show you some door favourites from this year, just as our hosts Dan Antion instructs. I better do what he says. He has just published the third book in his Dreamer’s Alliance trilogy.

Some of these doors you have seen before but all together like this they reflect my year 2021 pretty well.

The first photo below, none too noteworthy, is especially meaningful. It was March, I was starting to lose my mind after a long, uneventful and pandemic winter, when I noticed this door walking home for the shop, as if I’d never seen it before. I took it as a symbol of good things coming, and in time they did.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. I am so relieved that WP asked you a question, too. My question was ‘what are your two favorite things to wear?’ I tried to delete it, but it would not go, so I was very relieved to find it did not show when I hit ‘publish.’ Weird stuff, Manja!
    I love the laundry flying the in the Santa Fiora photo. It almost matches the curtain in the window. Or is it a reflection?

    1. Ohh, he is always near, so I’m not sad at all, except this summer I was in Slovenia without him for 3.5 months. A record. 😀 Thanks, bushboy! This is a great greeting and the first I received. Eventually I’ll post the Last of the Month too, haven’t forgotten.


      1. This is so sad! I have seen all their this year’s games, now that they have Brunson (he was second best Mavs last year, Luka’s pal, it’s heart-breaking that he left for bigger pay). They are not bad at all! I love Toppin the most.

  2. Big, little, ornate, shady, working and tossed aside – you always have the best doors. Manja. You aren’t obligated to share the best of 2022 on the 15th, I’m just carrying out the tradition started by Norm. I hope you like the changes I made to the badge contest. It was in response to your suggestion, but I think it’s appropriate.

  3. Ugh, after a morning of “doomscrolling” I’m thinking I’d be better off without news on my phone. I’d certainly get more done! I don’t ever get a question on WP so I don’t know what that’s all about. Love the message of the first door photo. And I always love your basketball musings 😊
