The “photo of the week” word is windows. Saturday chores start in just a few minutes and I look forward to working on that project.
I do most of my good thinking while staring outside.
In the meantime, I found some interesting quotes.
Poor Tennessee…always a scardy cat:
“We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call;
no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down
with us trapped, locked in it.”
A “Come to Jesus” perspective that I prefer:
“Bare heights of loneliness…
a wilderness whose burning winds sweep over glowing sands, what are they to HIM?
Even there He can refresh us,
even there He can renew us.”
This quote brings images to mind that remind me of the hours and hours of BBC dramas that I watched over the long winter school break:
“Every face, every shop, bedroom window, public-house, and dark square is a picture feverishly turned–in search of what? It is the same with books. What do we seek through millions of pages?”
I like this quote the best. Windows are about feeling safe, eh? :
“It is not real,” he whispered.
“This place is only a thought that has grabbed hold of you.
It cannot harm you.
You are not of this place, and it has no power over you.
You do not need it, nor do you owe it your allegiance.”
listening only to his words and not to the rattling of the windows,
which had begun as soon as we stepped inside.”
