“When one door closes a hundred open.” Spanish Proverb

Drink in those rare moments when,
Passion and precision become one.
Our fortune lurks behind the door,
Lo! fear not when the curtain closes.
Hence at end of tunnelΒ coruscates a
Light, visible far fromΒ acres hundred.
Fate thus leaves an alternative open.

    Very wise lines Sanaa! It is often said that one is not to give up hope for there are doors waiting to be opened. It is a matter of searching for it!
