I have always wanted to somehow “collect” doors. Not only are they often beautiful and vary a great deal in style and color in different parts of the world, they are also rich in allegorical meaning: doors are how you enter a home; a place of learning; a place of worship. It’s also how a complex inner life presents an image (or a barrier) to the outside world. Embodied by the god of doors, Janus, they represent new beginnings, and the aloha concept of a simultaneous “hello” and “goodbye.”
