Pinto means Door

Translated into English, pinto means "door". In my dreams , I see a french door which opens into a secret garden, mysterious and awe inspiring, a door that leads me to beauty that only God can handwrite. There's grapevine trailing along crisscrosing wood that let's you peek.

e.e. cummings said "somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond any experience..."

A door is just that... it can mean an experience that has been waiting for you to open...
It speaks of opportunity, the door which may open just a tiny bit for a tiny fraction of a moment, maybe disguised thinly as a challenge, or as difficulty.

Someone close to me,my sister is going to a far place, where she sees this slim crack, a door that may be the one door that can lead to other chances. Because what is a chance but a choice you take for yourself past all fears, past all ifs and buts.

The challenge quickens the blood and makes one feel alive. 
The choice renders you captain of your soul. Because a door is just that, a challenge and a choice.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
