Windows To Our Souls: Daily Life in America

Views From Our Windows

Andrew Sullivan has observed that he gets to read some of the smartest emails on the web, “but you don't get to know who your fellow-readers are, where they live, what they do, what they see as they look out their window each morning.” Isn’t this also true for most of us on the web? Last year, a posting that I made here, The Dawn, conveyed a similar theme.

In response to this sense of internet opaqueness and anonymity, Sullivan began an on-line project called “The Window Project.” He asked his readers to get out their digital cameras and take pictures of the views from their windows, from the living room window, bathroom window, car-window or even from an office window. Here are a just few of the window views that have been posted on his blog. The first window picture is the most emotionally touching for me, evoking sad memories about and feelings for New Orleans. Many of the other window pictures can be seen on Sullivan’s website.

I just love the idea of this project.

Thanks for your comment, Rich. Yes, this Project does manage to get us away from today's rather nasty political world, back to our lives as plain old everyday people. Again, I very much appreciate your comment.
