overweening personal ambition is no virtue;
but while i had it,
i could have danced on a bed of nails.
when the lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window
something about today made me remember this from the sound of music.
whether through the door or the window, it's the same wide horizon we see outside. just that now, it's through the window. it's when we get outside we learn how much the journey to go out has shaped and developed our perspectives and perceptions of that same wide horizon.
