Ann-Christine is right. Windows can tell stories. Here are some of my favorite windows with stories to go along with them.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
If the house of the world is dark, Love will find a way to create windows.~Rumi
I love the beauty of this window in the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens in Vancouver, B.C. The window is unique because it was shipped in pieces from China and reassembled in Canada.
Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.~Edith Wharton
This week I said goodbye to this view from my living room window. On some mornings, I looked out at the sky while I drank my tea or read emails. On our last morning in the apartment, I took this shot to remember the view.
As you can see below, the evening skies were also spectacular.
Moving is never easy. It is always freighted with aggravations and emotional highs and lows. Still, I’ll always carry with me the memories of this airy and light-filled home, high above the Grand River. Our time in this place was joyful.
I’ll end this post with a poem about windows, of course!
A special thanks to the very talented Ann-Christine for an inspiring challenge and to all of our participants for their responses. Amy will post the next challenge on Saturday, October 13th at noon. I hope you will join us!
