By the Window

Wouldn’t it be nice to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon in front of a large open window, with a pot of tea, a delightful slice of cake and an engrossing book or letter at hand?
A gentle breeze floats the curtains and pervades the room. There is business going on in the world outside, but you are just inside your window. Disconnected from the busy movement beyond the walls of your home. You have your reading. You have your garden
[Sigh] Wouldn’t it be nice?
