Doors are boundaries we use in our homes. They give privacy to the members of the family living inside, as shown in the featured image at the top of this post. They also put space between the family and the outside world.

Our front door is a boundary we try to make as welcoming as possible. We invite people to enter, to share with us, and to celebrate with us.

But that door has locks on the inside. We also use that door to put a boundary between us and the outside world that cannot be crossed without our permission.

Doors are boundaries.
