This is not the view outside my window, how much so I wish it to be.
This is River Ribble viewed from the Avenham Park. I love to take a seat on a bench in the park and spend a few minutes just watching the flowing river. This sight calms me down everytime I feel worked up.
The last time I acquiesced to drag my feet along in the scorching heat, the video bomber did not let me spend my calm time because his reason was sitting does not make you fit but continuously walking will. This makes me wish what if this river flowed just below my building and I could catch a glimpse of it any time from my window. I am pleasantly dreaming of the availability of ready therapy without having to walk across the city centre to the other side of the city and which involves going up and down the hill. Not that the hills are steep here yet still. Oh please! Don’t side with him and tell me I am being lazy. Hot days, although rare, do give an allowance to be slothy.
Muting the logic, I am neither thinking about the rainy days which happen to be in plenty nor am I thinking about the prolonged spell of heavy rains which are sure to bring the river outside my window to make a magical appearance on the other side of the window, inside my living room. Flowing water turning into standing, rotting water will defeat the whole purpose behind having the river flowing outside my window.
While the above is not a possibility, I am sharing some real pictures of the view of the sky from my windows.
Tell me does watching a river flowing its course soothes you too? Or is it watching the sky which does the wonders for you?
