Windows For The Soul?

I love windows. Windows of all kinds. While I'm waiting for pics to upload, which on my computer takes a long time, I read the dictionary. So I looked up window and it had nothing romantic; no connotations of anything I would like to rehash. So, why are they romanticized in song, literature and art? Uh, I don't know. But, I like all shapes and sizes of them; especially stained glass and primitive ones. The bunny window must be a dancing rabbit. If I wanted to lecture, I'd tell you about the Battle of Dancing Rabbit Creek. It involved the Choctaw Indians who were given the southeastern part of Oklahoma.


This grouping faces east and are beautiful in the morning. The large windows were from a church and have latches to open and close them. Just imagine how they must have looked when they were in the church.


Here's a closeup. I must have had a few drinks when I took this picture. Just kidding.

I really love this Gothic window. The colors are so pretty. I had two and sold one. I don't know what I was thinking. I would have really loved to see them in their original setting.
