Gone and hopefully, not forgotten; sorry for being absent in posting and reading the blogs of the dedicated door aficionados of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors. I have no excuses but once you make an exception to miss a posting deadline it becomes easier to miss more deadlines; guilt does hang over your head and eventually you feel compelled to add a post so my guilt runneth over.
I haven’t been doing doorscursions recently so I haven’t found any new locations for doors but I still have some door photos in the archives somewhere. The creative writing needs a kick start but a short post may get the brain moving again. I was visiting Los Altos in April, a small city in Silicon Valley where my in-laws reside and I always enjoy their “village” feeling. Their town is their village and I wish we had one where I live; all we have in my city are shopping centers!
On the return to my in-law’s house after lunch we passed the community center and the Los Altos Community House which is the location for the Los Altos Community Foundation. Their mission statement on the website says, “Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF), its donors and volunteers, provide grants, operate leadership and community-building programs, incubate “startup” nonprofits, offer donor advised funds, and convene groups to address community issues.” But it was the house and door that caught my eye and that’s my Thursday Doors post for this week.
This is a cellphone shot of the walkway and the front of the house.
