Beautiful Souls in the Windows

The face of beauty can sit on a soul of beauty.

This is the wall of an apartment building in the medium-sized Swedish town of Norrkoping.
Who lives behind these windows?
The Swedes are fanatical about having light in their houses, yet these people sacrifice some of that light to preserve the wild beauty of the ivy.
Rather than clip the ivy from around their windows, they offer the people going by the full spectrum of nature’s generosity. They obviously feel that such beauty should not be tamed.

What should we say about the generosity of the people living behind the ivy? We should say thanks. If they should look out of their windows as I walk by, they should be able to see my smile. They can’t see my heart dancing a naked polka of joy, but I hope they feel pride in putting the smile on my face. They are undoubtedly wildly beautiful people.
