About Windows, Not “Windows”

Posted on October 22, 2009 by


What comes to your mind when you hear the word “windows”? Of course, you recollect Bill Gates, his Microsoft guys and their perpetration. Only after that you might remember some wood-and-glass, PVC or fiberglass hole in the wall behind your back. Or might not. Anyway, today I want to mull over these, traditional windows, or as they are called sometimes, “the eyes of the house”.

    “the eyes of the house”. This helps to explain a cultural thing about windows and why some were ostentatious. A belief in warding off malicious spirits or events was embraced by a lot of peoples, more so than just a decoration- keep these tidbits coming ER, I keep learning more and more every time I visit.

    My daddy Vladi Sr. (ex-KGB agent/former Prime Minister) loved vindows too. He would lure his political opponents to a room in a tall building and throw them through the vindow!
