My Kitchen Window...
My window isn't fancy. It's standard size, The view from it will never go for a 'million dollars' . However, the location of it (just over my kitchen sink, southerly facing) is what I gather great joy from, each and every morning.
The trees just outside it, lovely in shape, size and colour, are an added bonus.
Rays of light stream into my wee kitchen space, just as the sun makes its climb, upward, over the neighbouring buildings. Warmly it (sun) greets me. Keeping company, while I wait for the kettle to heat up. Many an early morning I look outside with a renewed spirit, just because of this window! Warming my spirit, mind and body. Energizing me creatively .
At my computer, I sip my freshly made tea. I gaze at my window. Picking the camera up, I snap these two photos.
The stillness of this morning is not unique, or rare. We (window, sun and me) have many a shared morning, just like this. No, I don't think a window an organic, living being. However, I whimsically imgine, at times, that the window is just as pleased with me, as I am with it. And that the sun is friends with my window!
So, perhaps instead of a 'million dollar view' it's just simply; a priceless window.
