LIGHT.  We can't have enough of it.  When I look at this building, I am not concerned with the children who attend school here.  Instead, I imagine the possibilities of turning this place into a wonderful home--one that has huge windows that allow the natural sunlight in to brighten the interior.  The people who must work here every day are lucky I believe.  There are very few buildings like this one in the area that I know of and I wonder a great deal about its creation.  Who was the architect?  What was its original purpose?  When was it built?  Where else can I find such wonderful buildings with similar windows? Why can't I be rich?  I'd buy the building, gut the inside and take full advantage of the light from the windows and even devote a section of the building to my very own greenhouse.  To have such a beautiful piece of utilitarian architecture used as a school for children is such a WASTE.  They cannot appreciate it in any way shape or form.  I think that the next time I see this building, I will go up to the walls, touch the stonework, find a way to get inside and photograph the light streaming in from the windows.  What do you think?
