Through a window darkly...

Through a glass darkly definition:  To see “through a glass” — a mirror — “darkly” is to have an obscure or imperfect vision of reality. The expression comes from the writings of the Apostle Paul; he explains that we do not now see clearly, but at the end of time, we will do so.

So looking through this glass window darkly... "glass," is ambiguous, possibly referring to a mirror or a lens. So I'm doing my own translation from Greek and looking through a smudgy lens and window through to the autumnal tints of the day.
