There is a very large window right next to my kitchen table, where I sit and work on my internet devices. I look out this window and right into one of my lovely lilac bushes. I can smell the opulent smell of those purple clusters, now in full bloom.
From this same window, I can watch my neighbors, although I rarely pay much attention. My attention is usually on my blogging, reading, writing or daydreaming.
My room, my kitchen, is surrounded in love and comfort. There are several shelves on the walls that hold many different spices from all over the world, and counter tops that hold small appliances, cannisters and larger jars of spices. My kitchen brings me comfort and is definitely my favorite room.
Sometimes I think that I would love for my window to be on a second floor or even a third floor to get a better view, but then I would not have my lilacs right there in front of my eyes to enjoy or to smell their rich and intoxicating fragrance.
Other times I think that I would love to have the view the birds have or even a view of sitting on a cloud while I am dangling my legs and feet.
For now however, my view is that of a beautiful lilac bush, loaded with magnificent purple lilacs, smelling their fragrance, as I sit next to my kitchen window interacting with my online friends.
I feel pretty contented.
