Watching the Horizon
It's been a long time since I lived in a one story house. A house where if you wanted to know what the sky looked like you had to look straight up. I had forgotten the feeling. It's kinda claustrophobic to me. Right now as I sit at the table with the biggest window nearby, I can see traces of color in the sky but only a wee bit as I have to look straight up past rooftops and trees.
Ahh yes, I think I'm missing my hilltop home in Mexico where each night I'm greeted with a horizon that is of interest. Rain clouds coming over the mountains is fun to watch. You can see the rain far, far away and watch as it comes closer. Cloud formations are fun too. Of course sunsets go without saying. Each unique.
You don't think about those things until you don't have them. Then the importance takes on a new urgency.
It's been almost 20 years since I lived in a one story house with no views. Hopefully that won't ever happen again!
