icons in windows
virgin marys, rosaries
huge eyes of horus
protection, comfort, power
we keep reaching, needing, more
For some reason, on the bus this morning I started noticing all the crucifixes, madonnas, hands of fatima, ankhs, etc. in house and shop windows on my way down to Atlantic Avenue. I was surprised both by the numbers of items and by the fact that I’d never noticed them before. I live in a very ‘churchy’ neighborhood, of course, but I was still surprised by how many figures there were and by their prominent placement in front windows.
