Clean windows make the difference

There's an anecdote about a woman who lived in an inner-city basement apartment. The wind would blow street dust, bits of paper, and other trash against her windows. She constantly complained that her apartment was always dark, even on bright sunny days. One day when an out-of-town friend was visiting, the woman went to do an errand. In her absence her friend took a pail of soapy water and thoroughly cleaned each window. Sunlight streamed into the apartment, highlighting the beauty of her furniture and decor. On her return the woman was delighted to be able to see clearly in her light, cheerful home.
