Photo taken August 2009 at Holy City of the Wichitas at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge just outside of Lawton, Oklahoma.
There is quite a collection of window photographs in folders on my drive. I enjoy windows. I think of windows of one of life’s metaphors and how they pertain to the lives of those persons close to me.
I have two windows. My window looking out is large, clear, with a view of wide open spaces and an unending road. Looking in, my window is open, tinted, with a fresh breezing blowing the white curtains inside.
Windows, like people, are very different: stained, broken, barred shut, curtained, clear, and more. The window in the photo above is like that of a friend I have known for a while–stained and very difficult to see inside; difficult to open, yet its beauty draws one in to learn.
What is your window?
