A new view on life


It never ceases to amaze me that some things in life take ages to figure out. I love windows with no curtains overlooking gardens and I have a lovely room in my home that has such a view. It never occured to me to put a chair in front of the window to relax and enjoy the view.....that is until last night at midnight. I was up at 6am and in the chair by dawn and it is fantastic. The number of birds that fly by are amazing. All the seagulls go past in huge flocks traveling between the beach and inland. I love being able to see my little courtyard. I've shared the good news with my mum already by phone and told a few friends in emails. I am so pleased I thought I'd put it on my blog.
I realise a lot of people have extraordinary views and I used to have an amazing large garden but my new little view means the world to me.....guess you can tell!!!!
It reminds me of the time I discovered a short cut down the beach so I can go everyday instead of the long way once a week.
As an artist I am always looking for new possibilities but some things take time and when they are discovered mean all the more because of it.
What a happy beginning to the day.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

How awesome that you can discover that. I know we're always learning :)

Watch those seagulls - they're racist. There's the white/gray ones and the brown ones. I've seen them break up into groups to pick on each other.

Birds are fascinating.

I think it is amazing that it is 2 and a half years since I put the chair there. when my new lounge suite comes I will put another chair in there where my dads chair is. I am so blessed and I love my sky view and seeing the birds and dragon flies each day
