Journal Prompt - The World Around You 1


I'm enjoying the weekly themes. They keep me on my toes. I hope you're enjoying them, too. This week, let's take a look at the world around us -- starting with the view from your favourite window.

My favourite window is the one I'm sitting in front of right now. It lets in all sorts of light and warmth during the day, which never fails to cheer me up. Today, it's snowing out there beyond the window. That's one thing that changes throughout the year and throughout the years, too. It feels like there's less snow now than there used to be (although that could be nostalgia talking).

Other things that change: people and noise levels. In winter, it's rare to see even a single person wandering by. In warmer weather, there are often people in view -- adults chatting in front of barbecues, children playing. And as soon as the weather improves, the loud machines come out - lawn mowers and power drills and chop saws. I much prefer the far off sounds of traffic on a snowy day.

How about you? What are the changing sights and sounds (and scents?) from your favourite window?
