This Window is Looking a Little Sad These Days

I’ve been passing by this basement window for years, and I posted about it four years ago. I wonder if the person who decorates this window is no longer with us, or is simply not into it anymore. It just looks like they are not making the effort they once did.

Oh god, is that all our fates, this winding down? Except then I think of people like Hillary Clinton, running around the country running for president, being grilled by congress for eleven hours and remaining articulate and poised. Or John McCain showing up for votes with a brain tumor. I don’t know why I picked politicians as examples, I guess they came to mind because of the current climate. I worry all the time. But Stephen Hawking is still working.
