The Stories Of Krakow Doors (Entrances) - Part 2

Friday, September 2, 2016

Dearest hearts,

A while back I started on my Instagram page a series about Krakow's doors / entrances. I shared the first 2 short stories on the blog last month, but I thought that I should share the rest with you as well. Each door in Krakow, for me at least, has a story to tell. Let me know if you think the story fits or if the picture tells you a different story than the one I think of :) You can also read here the first 2 short stories!
Short Story number 3 - Twists and twirls and vines... it got me thinking what if they would start to move and the door would open up to Alice in Wonderland... she would smile and invite me in to paint some of that white roses into red. That would get ne into trouble with the Red Queen, of course, and I pretty much like my head in its natural order and position ;)) 🌹🌹
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Short Story number 4 - It's typically (traditional) Polish custom when a house is build to put at the entrance a statue (however small) of a saint. It is no different with the kamienice in the Old Town (small old blocks of flats built before the second and even first World War). I know we are used to looking down or ahead but sometimes it's good to look up and enjoy the little wonders Kraków brings us...

Yours sincerly,
