Thursday Doors, 26/11/20: Farnese 6.

While my tour of Farnese continues, not everything does. Norm is stepping down as the host of Thursday Doors. No worries though: we are going to go on loving him and the doors.

Everything really does come to an end, it seems. His announcement made me weepy so I realised we need to say goodbye, no, au revoir, in style, with the national anthem a la Canada. I do realise this is a Toronto choir, whereas Norm is from Montreal, but it will do. Doors in all weather, just like sports.

Thank you, Norm, for all the doors and all the fun and all the work that goes with hosting, for your and Honey’s brief but memorable visit, but most of all for the photo of your guest room. I keep it in mind as potential future.

Here is how my Farnese stroll continued. The last photo is out of turn. It shouldn’t appear for another ten minutes but I also wish to end Norm’s hosting with a proper, gentleman, no, hunk of a door that one cannot pass without sighing.

The show will go on with Dan at No Facilities taking over as the host next week, which I find most fitting. I wish him and all Americans happy Thanksgiving, and to Norm happiness, health and hurrah for all the good times we had and will have, who knows, maybe again in Italy and/or Montreal.

And now, here are blue and green shades and shadows of Farnese in four minutes.

  1. What a great way to honor Norm and the wonderful work he has done building this community, Manja. I love the doors you shared to day. I, too approve of that blueish color and I love the curves steps and stone and brick walks. I also really love seeing the disproportionately split double doors at 191. I am honored that the road will continue next week as Thursday Doors moves to Connecticut.

    1. Thank you, Dan. Connecting people in Connecticut! 🙂 Looking forward to more door fun. I’m really grateful to you for taking over. If even you with your colour blindness approve of that blue, it must be a good one. 😉 And I love it how you watch doors with your technical eye and always see more. See you next week.

  2. Grazie Mille! The video from the Grey Cup is a classic Canadian moment. You know, I’m sure both you and Marco would LOVE coming to see an outdoor football game in late November with all that “drama” falling from the sky. The guest room is ready whenever you are…assuming we’ll be able to travel again eventually.
    The curved stairs look almost as dangerous as the crazy outdoor staircases of Montreal but without the ice and snow.
    As for the last picture: well you finished with an absolute beauty…and the door is kinda nice too 😉
    Take care my friend. We’ll definitely keep in touch – Ciao!

    1. Ahhh, Norm the Smooth. 😀 Yes, I can just imagine his face if he’d need to endure this experience. He would need a LOT of cookies after that. Yes, we will be here, as long as the internet survives. Then we’ll need some sturdy seagulls. Be well, my friend, thinking of you and sending you good vibes for whenever you need them.

    1. Thank you, Bojana. 🙂 Buying, really? But the green means there is tones of mould that is not easy to shake off. I will continue even though right now I can’t move around at all. Not just for the lockdown, my damned heels hurt again. 😦 Every step is painful. I hope your foot is on the mend.

      1. Would you be surprised if I told you we have mold here? So…
        Sorry to hear that, Manja. I had some issues when I was younger, so I know the feeling. When the pain stopped, it felt weir. I wish yours stopped soon. (I’m getting there…slowly, very slowly…)

  3. Love this journey through the doors my favourite I think. Some of the doors are wonderful. I too wonder whats behind that round door with the chairs and lock. The blues and greens and patterns all too good. 🙂

  4. This place really looks amazing with its cobbled winding streets and textured walls. Love your photo with that grand door best! This is an amazing send off to Norm and a welcoming message to Dan.

  5. A stunning collection befitting the farewell for Norm. I too felt rather empty when he announced he was stepping down. What joy his Thursday Doors has brought and will continue to bring. I particularly like the door with the green algal steps, all shots of it.

      1. Maybe you still live like you used to over there, but here it’s rather different. It’s troubling that we can’t plan, or move much, or just enjoy life, culture, meet people, visit other countries. You know, things like that.

      2. I cannot leave my municipality. 15 minutes to the lagoon is out of reach for me now. Our vet 15 min in the other direction is out of Tuscany already and also out of reach. Luckily I don’t need it but what if?

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
