Doormats

Doormats greet you. ‘ Welcome ’, they say, or they use cute little animals (mice, cat’s feet, an old dog) to make you feel at home before you enter the house. Other doormats are silent, but offer an exchange to you, as a guest, invited or uninvited: you can clean the soles of your shoes, to rid you of any unwanted refuse that might stick to your feet. An exchange of honour takes place: you can avoid disgrace in you host’s home, while your host can avoid the disgrace of a dirty home. Doormats remind us of the dignity and meaning we can find in giving every guest the warm welcome they deserve.
