Open the windows!

I've got a thing for windows. I imagine them to be the "eyes" of a home. They filter happy rays of sunshine, they let fresh air in,  they keep out the rain and the snow, and when closed, they make us feel safe. The image of someone waiting by a window can be so intriguing! Is the person lonesome, anxious, afraid, sinister?

Children stand by a window to see if reindeers really fly.
 Faithful dogs wait for their loved ones to come home.

It's commonly said: "keep an open mind" but, what about the soul?  The mind serves a purpose, no doubt in that, but the soul, ah! the soul is our very center. What good does it do to keep an open mind when our soul is closed?!


The soul MUST be open and clear, exposed to beauty and light, to things that are positive and clean. Only then can happiness and inner peace be found!


I say, let's open our windows!!! Let's!

Albert Schweitzer said "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit" I thank you all!
