I love rooms with large, bright windows! Every time Terry and I hunted for a place to live - even an apartment - windows and light were our first considerations.
My eyes often stray to the scenes framed by the windows...
Transitions, Julia Cameron writes: The window of my writing room looks north to Taos Mountain. At one moment it looms dark purple against the horizon. Moments later, it is lit by gold...
"Everything changes, is always changing," the mountain reminds me. And yet, it reminds me, too, "There is a bedrock, a level of spiritual reality, that remains always the same."
Sometimes the sky is red.
The beauty of the constantly changing sky reminds me that God's creative ability seen in nature is so much greater than mine! My attempts at painting nature never grasp the beauty I see before me. And the colors always fit so well together!
I find comfort viewing these changes from my little room overlooking trees and flowers in summer - and trees and snow in winter.
Not only am I thankful that I have a view unimpeded by tall buildings or trees - but also that much of my life remains the same - in spite of the changing skies.
