Window of opportunity

The window is a wonderful contrivance... when inside, it allows light to enter, and provides a means to view the outside world.

But is also allows those outside to peek in.

So it is a two way street... a means of observation without hindrance, but at the expense of privacy.

From this standpoint a window is a metaphor. We want freedom, yet in our dangerous world, it often results in intrusion.
