Windows are all different, have stories, tell stories, inspire poesy and songs; Jacques Brel may not have thought of the Pontresina windows when he wrote his song, Les fenêtres, but I had a thought for him, when walking in the village. . .
Elaborate frame, geraniums, nice shutters (picture 2), this is just one sort of window; opening it must be a nice feeling. . . . . other windows are behind balconies (picture 3), some keep shutters closed (picture 4) . . . . . , like in Brel?s song they are all different, can look outside different ways, or think of what happens behind the windows. . . .
And there are these monumental doors/shutters of hay lofts (picture 5), with their carved holes to give air to the hay inside. . . . Big hay carts do not anymore circulate in the streets of Pontresina, but I can think of hot summer days when the carts came back from the fields to bring food for the cattle in winter. . . . and certainly many stories happened on the haystacks behind closed windows.
