What life can compare to this?
Sitting quietly by the window,
I watch the leaves fall and the flowers bloom,
As the seasons come and go.     — Hsueh-Tou

Don’t you love sitting quietly by a window?  I don’t make enough time for it.  I always find it calming; the combination of sunlight (or moonlight) and the sounds and colors of nature are soothing and stimulating at the same time.

For some of us, it’s now springtime; for others, it’s autumn.  Still others live near the equator, where the seasons are more subtle, but worth watching nonetheless.  What do you see outside your window today?  Feel free to send photos to share (email them as attachments to defeatdespair@verizon.net).  Here’s what I saw outside my window the day I wrote this post:

Cherry blossoms outside my window April 2015

Today, I wish you a deep understanding of how incomparably blessed we are by the ever-changing, endlessly unique sights we see through our own windows!

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
