Aren’t windows the funniest things? We build walls to separate us from what we don’t like. Our house walls keep the heat inside during the winter, and outside during the summer. They keep the noise of passing cars to a minimum. They keep us dry during the heavy rains.
The walls make us much more comfortable, but they also can make us forget. They can separate us entirely too much, so we put windows in.
We can let the sunlight and fresh air in through the windows too. They are in many ways a tremendous addition to the quality of a living space
One place where I think windows don’t get enough attention – they make the most delicate and intricate frosty shapes in winter.
