Thursday Doors – March 29, 2018

Valparaiso, Chile

This city has an amazing history of conflict, control, and earthquakes. Today, the city spreads high into the hills surrounding the natural bay. Here are a couple of shots to give you an idea of how it appears.


The snow covered mountain in the background is Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina. It is the tallest mountain in the world outside of Asia, at 22,837 feet.


Around the bay you will find many government and commercial buildings. In these lowland areas, most doors are covered with graffiti.



When you move up into the more residential hills, the graffiti is replaced with many artistic murals. The graffiti artists mostly respect these murals, leaving many building with beautiful artwork.





I want to close this post with a very bright building facade. This business is a liquor store.

Contentment Loot

Do your best,

Your very, very best

To live your life

Without the strife.


Ignore the news.

It brings the blues.

You Facebook App

Is full of crap.


Hang up the phone.

Don’t bide the drone

From friends who think

You’re on the brink.


Sit quietly now.

For this is how

You make your way

Through every day.


Be kind to others,

They are your brothers.

They’ll come around

When peace is found.


They need to know

Ideas you sow

Will bear sweat fruit.

Contentment loot.
