Doors & windows

I think I know where M.C. Escher got his inspiration...
   They say that when God closes a door, he opens a window. But what they don't tell you is that sometimes the door doesn't want to stay closed, so you have to use said window as your emergency escape route.


   Sometimes the door you thought you wanted open was in fact a terrible pitfall and when you learn the truth, you can't slam it shut fast enough. Life is curious that way; things are not always as they seem. But every challenge is a learning experience, and I'm glad to have learned *quickly* and availed myself of the exit.
   What is life but a series of doors and windows—all choices. Like a bird, I'm flying freely through that open window. And I'll be all the more cautious with the next door. ;)
