My brother runs five miles every morning. On his run he is always looking for curb side finds for me to repurpose, reuse, and/or recreate. One day he brought over a collection of cabinet doors. Some of them had panes of glass, others were just simple old doors. I have had a lot of fun creating different things out of them. i.e., chalk boards, message boards, and wall art. Recently, he was outplace at work and I thought I would give him this message in a bottle attached to one of those old cabinet doors to offer him words of encouragement. The message in the bottle reads:
No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear:
But grateful, take the good I find
The best in now and here.
John Greenleaf Whittier
