What’s in a View?

The moment you catch yourself gazing out over the vast landscape can be your shining light of inspiration while if you were to stare out across a garbage pit it could force you recoil from everything you have ever known. It is how each view is shaped and molded that brings to question “What is in a view?” An age-old question of how do we come to the terms of the view we see in front of us.

The picture of this waterfall would suggest that is a slice of paradise. It doesn’t suggest that there are many people in front of me nor behind me waiting to climb the waterfalls slippery rocks. The picture doesn’t tell the story of the drunk staggering  man who rolled his ankle and almost took a tumble into the dingy water.

All this view tells you is that in that one moment there was a silence where the world stopped and I admired a brief glimmer of paradise.

Each day most people arise from their slumber to lookout from their windows and admire the dancing rays of the sun cross the sky as it rises to its blissful pedestal. In those morning rays we are all looking out our windows with different views, dreams, and ambitions. A view offers more to us than just appeasing our five senses – it can inspire us in one fluid moment to reach for the stars and find our own quiet space in this world.

  1. Your post is thought provoking to me – it makes me ponder what I see, what I imagine and what I do not see! I have been exploring new parts of the town I live in and the views have put me in my place, made me think about my perspective, changed my ego and attitude, made me respond, etc. Interesting, very interesting! Happy Week 🙂

  2. Good thoughts here. I love to look out into nature. That’s why we have planted all these flowers and bushes and trees around our house. They ground me, but also, to use your words, they give me: a brief glimmer of paradise.

  3. Yes it can, and you express it delightfully as I would expect. ” Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” some wise person said, and so I always try to look out of my window with a positive attitude. Sometimes it is easier than others I know

  4. Indeed, while it’s always important to strive to get the bigger picture and to realize the truth that comes from complexity it’s always our privilege to find the beauty wherever we wish to find it. I do believe that’s an art in and of itself 🙂
