    This was tough, but I picked the first pair. Several others called to me, too.

    I’m happy you took the quiz, Janelle. It was lots of fun creating it. You are Wood and Water, so I’m not surprised that you chose the Wood gates. Wouldn’t be surprised, either, if you were drawn to either of the Water gates. Thanks for letting me know!

    Loved ALL the gates! Wanted to open them all and see where they go.

  4. patrician Says:

    Elizabeth, it’s your Fire! Fire people tend to identify with and like all their choices. It’s fun!

  5. David Says:

    I loved them all – or at least one of each pair. Interesting that some pairs seemed opposing… I chose the second gates. Fire.

  6. Louise Says:

    Wood? Really? The one on the left looked cozy. I expected to find a wood-paneled (hmm…..) study with lots of books, a fire in the fireplace and a cat warming by the hearth….
    Who knew?!

  7. patrician Says:

    Hi David, Yes, some of the pairs are opposing on some level. I chose somewhat opposing gates as a reminder that each Element personality is diverse – yet there is something in common that most people of that Element identify with. I’m hoping some doors will get some of us thinking about our differences – challenging or compatible – as well as our similarities . . . and how to make those work for us. I’m not surprised you were drawn to all of the doors. Fire Element (aka you!) loves to explore whatever is there, especially if there is an element of fun. Thanks for your comments!

    Thanks for your comments, Louise. You have quite a bit of Wood Element, and I’m happy you are drawn to the Wood doors right now. I know that you are wanting focus and direct direction with your writing. Onward and upward! (A Wood chant/shout!)
