When you go to the theatre, curtains are used to:
- Separate the auditorium from the stage,
- Act as a backdrop,
When you go to a home, curtains are used for:
- Light and air control,
In a theatre, the audience, guests or visitors are treated to the front side of the curtain (beautiful view), while the performers soak in the back side of the curtain (ugly view), until they are allowed in. Very few guests are allowed in, to see the backstage. It is usually reserved for those that are enchanted by the performer.
In a home, the crowd, guests or visitors can only view the back side of the curtain (ugly view), while the owners soak in the front side of the curtain (beautiful view), until they are allowed in. Very few guests are allowed in, to appreciate the home. It is usually reserved for those that are trusted by the owner.
Curtains of a theatre – Externally motivated. Look good. Drive fast. Live large. Travel in front. Party hard. Bright lights.
Curtains of a home – Internally motivated. Feel good. Joy. Care. Commitment. Courage. Kindness. Integrity.
While some individuals live in a theatre, others prefer to be at home.
Your choices – Put up a show and let enchantment filter the crowd you let in or Create beauty within and let trust filter the crowd you let in. Choose what works for you.
