Windows...A Barrier or an Invitation?

         A Gateway Writing Project teacher consultant friend, a member of the Saturday Writers group, and a fellow blogger, Barbara can look at the most mundane thing and come up with an introspective, thought-provoking post.

       Check out her post on windows.  Think about what windows say about us...Some windows are covered with a kid's fleece blanket.  Some have no shades or curtains.  Did you ever notice that when you look into a home's windows at night, when the lights are on, everything looks cozy and Hallmark-y?

An unusual stained glass window---due to it being a "Roman" cross (resembling an "X")
This photo was taken by me during my trip to France in the summer of 2009. 
(I was searching for Johnny Depp, to no avail...I guess I will become
a stalker at a later date.)

       Barbara's blog is one to check out.  (Her observations about windows was posted on September 13, 2010.)


  1. Windows, interesting idea to ponder. I used to ride my bike about suppertime during the summer so I could see how people lived their lives. It was a time people had windows and doors open a lot. I could smell bacon frying, hear TV news blaring, see fathers with loosened ties reading the evening paper (a fading image!).

    Thank you for visiting my blog today. Your car POV: I just never thought of it before!I will have to think about this! Wonder what a car thinks when a kid with a sucker in his mouth gets inside?!?!!? :)

  2. Thanks, Sue. I enjoy your comments so much. Thank you for your generous spirit. Some chocolate is in your future!
