Windows tell a story, and to me there is nothing more comforting, more reassuring than seeing lamplight in a window. It means someone is home. It may even mean someone (several people if you're lucky) is waiting for you.
I especially like open windows, literally and metaphorically!
I find it soothing to glance out my window at night and see a neighbor's light on.
It means I am not alone.
I hope on this Thursday you have plenty of light in your life!
