    It's Zen

    I like to lounge on the couch with my computer and stare out the living room window. It relaxes me to just let my mind wander, go blank,or daydream. It seems very zen, now if only I could achieve that during a yoga class.

    There's certainly something about sitting just

    right next to the window, be it a bus, a train, especially in a plane, that's when a lotsa things running in the back of your head and you're so obsessed with you own thought locking yourself in the emotion of past and can't help reminiscing all the good things happened for as...

    It's so relaxing

    I've enjoy staring out windows. In elementary school my friends teased me about it. They thought I was strange for it. We ride a bus to school 8 miles over a tiny High Sierra mountain road. I stared at the beautiful scenery most of the time instead of talking with the other...

    Watching the world go by,

    wondering about what each person is heading to or coming to, the scenery and the colours all around. Dreamily wondering if it would be so much more fun to be able to go off jauntily without a care like a child, merrily along. Wishing sometimes that I don't have to just be here...

    Some of my friends say

    that I'm boring because whenever we sit on a coach I stare our the window with headphones in listening to the one group of people that understands me: Imagine dragons ;)

    I like to stare out of the window every time

    I'm sad, it calms me even when I'm seeing nature. It makes me to think faster and to relax my mind and not to worry about the simple things.

    When I do this, people ask me,

    "What are you doing?" I answer, "Practicing my observation skills." I especially like it when snow is falling hard and I can stare right through it and get lost in thought. It's almost hypnotizing.

    When I go do Greece on holiday my family

    and I stay at a lovely hotel and at dinner we sit in the same place at a restaurant next to a window. I like to stare out of it when I'm left alone at the table and find the beautiful colours of the sky very interesting at that time of the night - the scenery is also beautiful...

    Window To The Free World

    She stands, forehead pressed against the cool glass with a longing in her heart. A longing to be free, to exist as only herself....for only herself. Free from the never-ending demands of motherhood; free from the unrelenting demands of a one-sided relationship. There are no...

    I find myself doing it quite often,

    absent-mindedly even. But the thing is, I'm barely paying attention to what's outside but instead, what's buzzing around in my head.

    It gives me a beautiful nostalgic

    and a nice numb feeling. It feels. Wonderful. And sad. And happy. And freeing. And everything
