"A door opened and I went through it".
Not only is Temple Grandin a hero of mine (see my National Inclusion Project involvement...), but could that quote not describe ALL of our involvements in this challenge??
Sally says "Let's open some doors to see what awaits us on the other side..."
I spent some time early this week to see what door I wanted to open, and made a decision that I was excited about...but unfortunately, Mother Nature has chosen not to cooperate once more. My chosen door "lives" about 30 miles away and it has snowed for the fourth day in a row today, so the roads are just not conducive to day tripping.
