Not all Mysteries are Secrets

Some of them are in plain sight, in the architecture, as here, on Clerkenwell Kid.

What you see through the keyhole is Alice's hand, opening the door into the garden.

Going through the links you suggest it's kind of looking into the keyhole. No mysteries, no secrets, just curiosity being rewarded with gold! Thank you, Susan!

The tiles in that place are something, but what captured me was the song by the end of the post:

"There is a door, my love
That opens for all of us
I know that scares you but
Give me your hand in trust
We’ll walk through that door
And find love was the one thing
Worth living for.."

The more I think about the title of this blog post, the more it confuses me. Can't help but think of The Secret Garden, too.

The light on that gold is very beautiful. Metal and paper are a very cool combination. Enjoyed the link too.
