A house of many windows

The body is a house of many windows: there we all sit, showing ourselves and crying on the passers-by to come and love us.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Happy you like it Luisa!
I agree, it's one of my favorite quotes lately. Our eyes and our mouths really are windows through which we show ourselves to the world.
The photo is beautiful, i like the composition very much. The distant outside world viewed from our intimate, inside world - that is the perspective through which we perceive everything.
