I’ve been thinking lately about windows. Perhaps it is because I am curious if the windows in the house we moved into a year ago are really energy efficient. Maybe it is also about my trepidation as to how I can safely clean the outside of these second-floor windows. Perhaps it is the wonderful poem I came across entitled “Morning Windows” by the 19th century American poet Amos Russel Wells. Maybe it was recently hearing on the car radio one of my favourite songs as a teenager “Look Through Any Window” (1965) by the British band, The Hollies.
(Fun Fact: over 25 years passed between the time the memorial balcony window, depicting the Ascension of Christ, was reserved in 1939 and the date it was installed and dedicated in 1964.)
