Thrownness locks and unlocks doors

We are thrown into the world with a specific set of keys. During our life we encounter a range of different doors and we test if they will open. When we go through the doors that our keys unlock they lead to other doors that can lead to good or bad experiences.

The state in which we exist is limited but pregnant with possibility. Parkinson's is part of my thrownness, I have a key that opens that particular door and I must cross the threshold, but it can lead us to resilience and determination. We had no choice over which keys we got but we can choose our reaction to the doors that open (and those that remain closed) and where we find ourselves.

We don't know whether one of our keys will fit nor what is behind each door but it is our lot in life to keep on trying the locks...
