Houses have souls

Those who have eyes have a soul. Windows are like eyes. The word window was adopted from Norse vind-auge in the Viking age, and means wind eye. So, houses have souls.

Can you see them?

I feel sorry for houses that are being torn down.

This is just virtual grafitti. I would like to paint this for real, but will probably not (too much work),  so I thought I could just as well post the picture.

But I like the idea. Mouth paintings under house eyes would be art interacting with the urban landscape, which is what is such a good thing about street art.

I have more house soul pictures that might show up here. Will post them under the tag houses.
