Sometimes you glimpse someone from a distance and feel glad for having seen them in a candid moment. I used to see common scenes like this a lot when I lived in San Francisco, except the apartment buildings were usually turn of the last century wood frame Italianate three stories or, if newer, were more often stucco rather than brick exteriors. Here in Seattle the older apartment buildings do usually tend to have brick facades. There is something happy about a lighted window on a fall night.
