Another beautiful view

Another beautiful view

I just finished working out. I’m back on my chair gazing out my windows looking at the sparkling water. I sometimes envy those people on the boats. Especially the ones I see coming fast in the open water before they have to slow down for the channel. I remember vividly how that breeze feels as you fly across the water even though it’s been ages since I’ve been on that type of boat. I also remember vividly how it feels…

In the present moment

In the present moment

The clock is reading 6:34am. I have already cleared both puppy areas, cleaned pooper scooper, fed both dogs (twice because I knocked over Minx’s bowl to which Zoey consumed more than a fair share) and started a load of laundry. This morning it was Zoey who was awake before Minx. When she woke Minx she wanted to play. Try to stop a French bulldog and a puppy from playing. Very unlike my Zoey yet there she was sprite as a…

Water view

Water view

I got my windows open. The sun is shining. It’s supposed to be almost 70° in New York today. The water is still so there’s no wind. I hear couple of birds chirping. I hear the seagulls which lets me know I’m by water. I know I’ll see boats today. I am just loving it. I don’t even mind seeing the bulldozer at the corner lot in my field of vision. It’s crystal clear out. I mean really, how can…

I love the view

I love the view

I’m distracted today. I’m watching the sun shine and twinkle off the water. There is even a boat. It is my favorite thing to look at. I know I’ve said this so many times but I just can never get enough of the sight. I can get lost in my view. I love everything about where I live. There has been NO construction on the corner site. Will there be? I’m sure. The land was purchased for close to 4…

A different kind of spiritual experience

A different kind of spiritual experience

I’m staring off at the water watching the sun glint and sparkle. There is one boat making tiny ripples. It seems warm today a very light breeze and I happily opened my windows again. This is just my favorite time of day, especially a weekend day. No one is around it’s just me and the dogs. My home is quiet and it is balance by the quiet outside except for the occasional car. It is just so peaceful. I’ve taken…

Flooding in the streets…for real

Flooding in the streets…for real

It is so surreal seeing the flooding that goes on down by me. I’ve seen the streets flood a few times now but watching it is still such a crazy experience. I still can’t figure out where the water actually comes from. The canal is two blocks from me but that road didn’t flood. I watched a truck drive through it. Yet my corner looks like this: This is the street behind me, my view from the balcony in both…

No chirping birds at 4am

No chirping birds at 4am

I woke up this morning and realized I don’t have birds chirping anymore. It isn’t just because of the changing weather it is because I have no trees. I have an occasional bird chirp, but not the conversations of those birds I use to hear when I lived in my old place which was surrounded by trees. Now I live close to the water. I hear more chatter from the pigeons and seagulls. Even they aren’t overly loud. I thought…

The morning stillness

The morning stillness

There isn’t a wind blowing outside which makes the water completely still. This is one of my favorite views. I could easily capture this in a photo because the water isn’t moving in a picture. Now imagine that in person, just complete stillness. There isn’t a boat, a ripple or a current disturbing the top of the water. I have a thing for the quietness of mornings like this. When my dogs aren’t barking, no one is in my house…

Peaceful and calm

Peaceful and calm

I have two favorite times of gazing at the water. One happens every day. That’s at night as the sun starts to set and the water changes to this dark bluish gray color. I just love the way it looks. Luckily I get to see it every day if I’m home at the right time. The other one doesn’t happen that often. You have to catch it at the right time and in the right conditions. It’s when there is…
