Tree Portal, Ireland

I’m still on doors, so you’ll have to be patient with me. This one stopped me cold. How does a tree survive with a hole in the middle of its trunk? That led me to— how does a person live with a hole in the middle of his or her heart? Many people do. So why not trees? Are the holes in our hearts there for the wind to blow through? For the light to reach from front to back? Maybe our purpose in life isn’t just to unlock and open all of our closed doors, but to remove them all together. And to finish life with a great big open place inside, so that we leave this earth as a portal, so that others can find their way.
Or maybe that’s what tumblr is for.
Oh… this is amazing.
