Why is it that the warm glow from windows at night look so safe and reassuring from the outside?  Why does the blackness outside from the inside point of view feel so gloomy?  You go for a walk at night and see the happy glow from the homes that dare to show their light to the outside world.  You imagine safety and warmth, a happy home and are thankful for the ones that let their light shine.  No blue flickering light, or worse no lights at all, shades pulled down, curtains tightly drawn for them.  Now you are back in that warm light emitting home but how the perspective changes if you look out to the night.  Nothing but darkness.  Down go the  shades, across with the drapes, light the candles, turn on the lights.  Keep the cold and darkness out.

It’s all a matter of perspective.  Are you looking in or out?
