The Escalator Door
Spotted this door ajar, on my way to the Metra station at the end of the day.
I was rushing to catch a train home, but circled back to snap a photo when I realized it led to the escalator on the other side of the wall.
I wanted to poke my head inside, to look around. And possibly to jump down into what I imagined was a space underneath the physical escalator itself. But alas, I was focused on getting home and getting to my train, quickly.
I’m reminded of one of the times where, when encountering an open door, asked to peek inside… and it was quite literally one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had.
This post is a reminder to myself to stay curious.
