How About This Sunset!!!

I'm moved in! I'm exhausted! But what a view from my new "office" this evening! Had to share it with you! Thanks for all the good wishes and good thoughts! They are so appreciated! Still a lot of work, unpacking etc, etc, etc! But I'm getting settled in! And this sight was just what the doctor ordered. I'm on the 5th floor, and the big, double windows in my cozy little office face west! I had hoped it would give me a great view, but I had no idea how good!  My next ones will be from the roof -- no window frames! Hope your weekend has gone well. I am SO glad to have the move over with. Still stuff to be done over the next few days, but I'm pleased and comfortable with my new home! And so is Sam Schnauzer!!


It's first
a thought,
close in the mind;
then,
a sharing,
with folks,
earlier close,
but now
a bit at a distance;
And finally
a striking out,
wide and open ,
to enjoy
your very own sunsets
on a golden evening
ensconced
amidst the boxes and bags;

So like
the blinds
on the picture window
gradually
opening up
and then some;
so you can smile
at the Sun
reveling amidst
his cloudy baggage,
before settling in for the night...


Welcome home !

How wonderful, Sylvia! That's a great view of the sunset from your office. I am glad you've settled in and Sam is doing well, too.

We have only one west-facing window, and it is very small. I dream of adding a larger window, for winter sunsets when it's too cold to go outside. Your photo has reawakened that dream.
Wishing you and Sam happiness in your new home. Hugs to both of you.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
