If You Are a Dreamer

 Streets Alive! Doors of Downtown Orillia

Celebrating outdoor art and creativity, Orillia area artists have repurposed old doors that are now on display (until October 12, 2015) on the city's main downtown street (Mississauga Street).

 "If You Are A Dreamer" by David Giannunzio and Erin Demery

This is one of the doors. I will post a few others later.

The door is open

Written on the door:
If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a prayer a magic bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!
~Shel Silverstein

Penelope Puddlisms said...

What a perfectly brilliant analogy! Books are like doors and windows opening us up to what oftentimes are new and imaginative worlds of the writers.

Really neat. Like Margaret, my first thought was I hope it doesn't rain!

Kay said...

I love this! (And I also find myself wanting to look at the titles of all the books used in it. I guess book browsing knows no bounds.) I'm looking forward to seeing other interpretations.
