Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

threshold_tree

What better way to capture the theme of  a Threshold than at the door of a library where new beginnings await in every volume … a place where the Tree of Knowledge lives and calls us to open its pages and embark on a new journey or skill.

I have always been fascinated by trees and when I came upon this door, it called me to photograph it. Then, of course, I had to find the origin of the beautiful and artistic piece. Woodworker Ruben Guajardo, born and raised in La Verne, California, took on the project in 1985 when a 500-year old landmark oak tree at the La Verne High School was removed because it had become a safety hazard. He recalls climbing this very tree when he was a child. The door project took him three years to complete which he dedicated to his parents.

Live life a tree . . . take root and reach for the sky!

And speaking of trees …. stop over at my website and check out my fascination with trees and  The Tree of Life.
