this is my favorite window at home. when I actually stop and look, I get pulled back to the present moment and am reminded of the beauty of the natural world. it invites contemplation. and appreciation.
for our feline family member it likely incites curiosity and longing …
this image also sadly makes me think of my beloved my father who has recently been moved to an assisted living memory care facility. the staff is loving, caring and attentive, the best one could hope for. and yet it’s still not good enough. not what we would want for our loved ones. most of us who have walked this road feel this way.
I see bird feeders and hanging flower baskets outside the windows of each resident, and I understand, and do the same. windows with a view are a blessing, offering a glimpse of beauty, a fleeting escape. and just maybe, for a moment, the longing is replaced by a feeling of joy.
