Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Like many of the photographers I know, I have a fascination with paths, gates, doors, and windows. During the time I’ve been at the Wabi-Sabi Ranch, I’ve noticed that nature has created quite a few windows on the property.
Love unlocks doors and open windows that weren’t even there before.
~ Mignon McLaughlin
I think, and I could be wrong, that part of the allure is the way these things lead the eye, and the mind, to wondering what’s beyond. I also think it has something to do with framing. In the image “Window overlooking the marsh,” the scene beyond is nicely framed by the trees and grasses that create the window.
I like looking through things, peering in between leaves and grasses and trees. Sometimes I look to see what’s behind the curtain. Other times I admire the curtain itself.
Our senses are indeed our doors and windows on this world, in a very real sense the key to the unlocking of meaning and the wellspring of creativity.
~ Jean Houston
I thought I might be able to ramble a bit more about windows, but I have to get this post ready to go out so I can get back to the working on the kitchen. I’ll have pictures from this weekend’s renovation work sometime next week for those of you who are interested in such things.
Thank you so much for visiting. Do you have a fascination with windows and doors, too? Or do your fascinations lie elsewhere?
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
Today’s joys: Destroying and removing the last bits of the old kitchen. Creating something new with M. A misty morning. Miso soup with noodles and vegetables. Relaxing at the end of the day.
