Monday, April 1: Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post this week is Entrance: Entrance generally refers to the place of entering like a gate or door, or the permission to do so.

I have been fascinated by Oman’s entrances & doors for over a year now.  Here is a bit of my collection.

All men have one entrance into life, and the like going out.
