    At least when I have one!

    Haven't sat on a windowsill in a while. But it's nice looking out into the streets, watching people with entirely different lives going about their business. Looking at the leaves, the sky, the grass. Just anything.

    Knees up staring out.

    Watching the world go by. Enjoying the warmth of home, while exploring the fantasy of being a spectator without sound.

    my sister moved out 1.

    5 months ago and i got her room (right next to mine)....it's only 10 feet away but the whole room is different, and it's because of the window. tbh i'm jealous she's had this room all these years! it has a faux balcony sort of thing outside and no screen, so the cat hops out...

    Mom will be here soon to pick me up

    and take me back home. :( I love spending time with my aunt. She is so cool. My mom just doesn't seem to understand me. She thinks I'm depressed because I spend so much time by my window. I just sit there and think about things. Sometimes I do get sad when I start thinking...

    I Was Always Small

    My favourite place of my old house was my windowsill. I used to sit there for hours with the window open when it rained during the summer nights. I did this from such a ayoung age. It would still be bright out and the smells of green would just lilt me into some sort of day dream...

    I Do This With My Baby.....

    We have a big beautiful set of windows with a marble window sill. My favorite thing to do is just sit on the sill and talk to my children about what is outside. Right now it is very cold and snowy so it is especially nice. We have a Big cherry tree in the backyard so in the...

    I sit on a methaphorical windowsill.

    (none of my windowsills are actually big enough to sit on). Every night I go outside and slowly walk around my yard staring at the stars just enjoying the cold air and the way the starry heavens make me feel small. It's absurdly comforting.

    Well it's not exactly a windowsill,

    but I love to climb up in the rafters of our barn. And look out the little window up there. I turn my hearing aids off the world disappears. I watch the animals roam and every once in a while a car will pass on the main road. I always wonder what they are doing and where they...

    Looking Out and Daydreaming

    I love to sit on windowsills and gaze outside.  Especially in the changing seasons and weather.  In the mornings, before going to work, I eat my cereal whilst sitting on the windowsill watching everyone else scurry past my apartment on their way to work and...

    Something Special About It ...

    I love to sit on the windowsills in my house.  In fact the windowsills were one of the features of the house which convinced me to buy it in the first place.  My house is about 120 years old and the walls are at least two feet thick and the windowsills are wide enough...

    In the house we stay in when we go to Cyprus, from one of the bedrooms there is the most amazing view right across the  fields and olive groves and up to the moutains. Everytime I go back, I sit there for hours, even at night and just look at the most amazing sight in the...

    I love midnights like this.

    Sitting at my home. On windowsill looking outside. The firament, the creation of God. I just love dark nights and beautiful nature. I equally love to lay my head on mans chest, to hear heartbeat and to feel the pulsating p****. In nights like that I crave to make love to the...

    Just sometimes when I want to be alone

    and listen. Sometimes I think about jumping out of the window and leaving. I can't abandon my mom like that. She can be tough on me but I know she loves me.

    In the winter when the storms crowd into

    or about our bay here, the only thing you can do is sit in your window, on the sill, and stare out praying for the return of the sun. It has been cold a few times lately, a couple of years ago we had heavy snow here, which was a surprise. Our planet is changing. It is a living...

    ..looking out , watching people with entirely different lives from mine, looking at the sky with diamonds(stars) shining.... Shadowy, ribbon-like clouds flowing around the moon....The moon, the stars, the streaming clouds, everything glowing with it’s own ominous light...
