about

"I'm a window cleaner," he said.

"A window cleaner and a musician?"

"No 'and'. Music is my window cleaning. . . You know that bit. Through a glass darkly. That's how people see. It's as though nobody was out in the world. . . We're all shut up in rooms. Everybody. And nobody can ever get into anybody else's room. That's because we've got bodies. And the only way we can have contact with people is through the windows in our rooms. . . And some people have more windows than others. And everybody's windows get dirty. So there have to be window cleaners. I'm one. At least maybe I will be one someday. That's what I want to be. . . . The trouble is that my own windows need cleaning. . . . Sometimes I read things and I can see out better. Usually it's music. . . Or a great actress. Or a painting . . ."

~Madeleine L'Engle, 'The Small Rain'
