Trust in dreams for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
~ Khalil Gibran- - - - -
A closed gate - even a locked gate - without a fence is nothing more than a slight inconvenience. You can walk around a locked gate.
Maybe ultimately nothing is more than a locked gate. There are ways through-around-over. Always. All ways.
Now, might there be a rabid dog behind that gate? Yes. There might be.
Of course there also might be a rabid raccoon behind you. So there's that.
Also, you should move away from here. There's too much rabies here.
