~Keys / Locks~
The right key can unlock the door to a lover’s heart, a new and bright opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, a chest of treasure, a deep and dark secret, or even kickstart time itself by the winding of an old grandfather clock…
Historically, companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, can serve as a reminder that there is beauty in having the key to free ourselves, but taking the first step through the door is entirely up to you… One key, one lock… what’s on the other side of the door is infinite possibility.
I have vivid recollections of the fiery orange ambers and gradient reds blanketing the mountain terrain around my Vermont home. They were sure to inspire my seasonally wild imaginings as I watched the foliage dance with one another in the wind. When my eyes had had their fill, I'd close them tightly to shut out the pulsing array of mountain fire... that way I could focus on the unique rustling the leaves made as they clung to their last few moments of connection to their parent tree. These fragile creations of nature represent unconditional giving and unassuming strength through the cycle’s seasonal rebirth. Luck is also an appropriate association because to be a leaf is to be lucky enough to know purpose without question. It is also said that if you catch a leaf on its fall from tree to ground, you will have good luck.
