In the projects there are bars on the windows. No one can stick their head outside of the window and look down to see who’s there or take a deep breath of air.
The guards are supposed to be to prevent children from falling out of the window but they’re on every apartment window even if the household does not have any children.
The truth is looking through window bars is not inspiring. It feels more like containment than prevention.
But I still feel that even if your windows have bars remember on certain days when the sun is at a certain angle its rays still shine through. Seek the sun.
