The light yellow in the sky heralding the appearance of sun.
This is the color of sky to the west of the building. Here is the brighter yellow unlike the pale yellow on the right side.
With the Fall season the trees are shedding their green color. Yellows appeared first giving an illusion of sunlight, whereas the sun had long ago dipped into the horizon. In the mornings the same illusion persisted that the sun rays were trying to reach out, whereas the sky would be grey— no sun outside.
Our new neighbors had started building their house. It was at our back. Our privacy was gone. The workers could see into our bedroom, and kitchen. I couldn’t keep curtains drawn all the time during daytime, and felt miserable without the sunlight. I felt lost without the brightness in our lives.
The only solution was to change the glass in our windows. I wish I had gone myself to find out which types of glasses were available. I didn’t. I left it to my late husband. When I went into the bedroom, and kitchen after the new glasses were fitted, I felt like I was blind. The glasses were opaque.
No one could look inside, but we couldn’t look outside too. It was highly disappointing. I could do nothing about it. It didn’t make sense to spend more money thrice on the windows. I let it be, and got used to it after some time.
