December 23rd… keep the lights on…

23

I love lights shining out from houses in the dark. And yes, if you don’t have curtains or blinds in the window, I will look in… not in a creepy way… but I often admire the scene framed by the window… what people have on their walls, what’s on their TV, what color are the lights on the tree. There was a house I walked by fairly often for a while, and I was sorely tempted to knock on their door because I loved the painting over their mantle and always wanted a closer look… but I was never sure how I would explain myself.

Our house has curtains on half the windows… so it presents a slightly confused front: open, yet private… sort of like me, actually.
