Window Shopping

Today, we went with the Raymonds and the Smoots to the market. We made our way down the "aisles" between pole booths and squished to one side to allow a lumber cart to squeeze through. I walked with my arms folded across my chest, holding the zippers of my jacket pockets as nonchalantly as possible to discourage/thwart pickpockets. 

As we browsed the shops cascading with shoes, scarves, tomatoes, dried anchovies, and watches, I began to do some window shopping. Boy windows, girl windows; happy windows, sad windows; Christian windows, Muslim windows; child windows, adult windows. As I peered into these deep brown windows, the windows stared back into my blue ones. Some windows were cloudy, while others were crystal clear. Each window had something fascinating inside. I wanted to delve into the secrets each one held. 
Give me Your eyes so I can see.
