Three Windows

Look up!
I do this from time to time and wonder...
Some people live in the strangest of places. I've always thought these lofts above Exchange Street would be oh, so comfortable and offer such interesting views on the world going on below. I bet they are kind of small but with interesting nooks and crannies all about. Probably warm too. All that hot air, from lawyers' offices below, rises to the fourth floor, you know. I'm probably just dreamin'. At twilight, these inhabitants probably just stare off to the west and wonder what living in a nearly 200 year old farmhouse is all about. My nephew lives in a condo across the Hudson from NYC. He watches the city light up each night. I bet it gets passe after awhile though. Some people move a lot. Is it because they are never satisfied and just can't find that comfortable existence? Might it be the nomad spirit of adventure within?  Others settle and don't move at all. What's that all about anyway. I guess it all comes down to finding your place, making it yours in your own unique way and enjoying the days as they go by. Live life! Don't cower!

  1. We're birds of a feather, Birdman. I look up all the time and wonder about where people live and what they're doing etc. I moved 25+ times between college graduation and my early-30's for my career. Fun, interesting, always on the go....and exhausting. Now, I'm quite content where I am.

  2. Your nephew's view sounds like it would fit me perfectly. I do love a view of a big city.

    Good subject for photography but I confess I would not be comfortable living in such a kind of place! :D
    Happy weekend!

  6. For me it was (and maybe still is) the spirit of adventure. Like that beautiful blue sky. -- barbara

  7. I tend to get very attached to things and places so don't really enjoy big changes or moves.

  9. I grew up moving around (Dad in Air Force) and then married a man in government work and moved around some more! Good times! Now I have a farm I wanted and finally feel settled.
