I do love the slices of personal life glimpsed through others’ windows…I must confess… Even just the briefest moment is, to me, more interesting than TV.
As one of my theater teachers in college said, if you’re watching a play, but you can see a tech person or janitor or someone doing something off stage in the wings, *that* is who you are going to watch — not the actors (no matter how good they are) — because it is *real*. (And also, in part, because you know you’re not “supposed” to see or watch that.) His point was that, as an actor, it is therefore your job to be as *real* in your emotions as possible; because *that* is when theater (and film) is compelling, riveting.
But this photo reminded me of just how much fun it can be to glimpse, unseen, a moment of someone’s life they are not intentionally putting on display. We wear so many masks, and hide behind so many walls of both literal and metaphorical varieties… it’s no wonder the windows of houses are so enticing and compelling.
