Sibiu - Doors and Windows

"The old house had a thousand doors in it.
All old houses do. 
You can see them if you know how to look: the noontime shadow of a windowpane crawling with intent across a floor; 
unmeasured angles of wall meeting wall; fireplaces grown chill with unused years. 
Archways with unseen contours you can trace with a finger in the cracks as brick grinds against brick in settling walls. 
Some nights, and some houses are doorways entire, 
silhouettes against the evening's last light black on black like an opening into a darker sky. 
You just have to look. 
An eye-corner glance will do, if you don't turn and stare and explain it away."

Michael Montoure - Slices
