As you can guess from this posts’ title, I’ll be writing about windows. Windows are a large part of our everyday lives. We use these sheets of glass to look outside, to explore our environment. We cover the windows to block out light or things we’d prefer not to see. We use them to breathe in fresh air, or close them to avoid odors. We look at the people outside, perhaps wishing we were in their postion, or instead feeling safe inside. We use windows to stare out of while daydreaming in class, or to allow ourselves a brief reprieve from studying. We open them up to let in the sun, or close them against the rain. We look outside to see the beauty, or hide from whatever is out there.
There’s a saying that “the eyes are the window to the soul”, but, the question is, do we want to look inside/outside? Or do we want to close the window shut, to hide away from what we fear? Windows are simply large glass sheets, yet how we use them makes them so much more complex and important.
So, what do you think about windows? (Lame question, I know, but forgive me, I’ve been in the library studying for the past few hours :))
I hope you all have a fantastic week!
