My head was reeling with all the economic turmoil and events of the world I've been getting up to speed on...I was about to drift into despair territory (but I promised not to)... so I decided it was time to shift focus and I did a simple Google search this morning, just for the heck of it - to see the view from someone else's perspective!
What I found was astounding- there’s LOTS of sharing going on!
I’ll show you mine... will you show me yours? I'll take you on a little detour here. Lets take a peek at what others' views are like! (I encourage you to do a Google 'images' search on "view from my office window"!)
Here's a pretty scene from the office window of a Trucker (he stopped to prepare and checks his brakes before taking a long steep descent). I suppose if you’re going to do that, then you want to take note of the last thing you might see?
From the office of a disabled dog rescue – a winter wonderland under the White Mountains.
Some excitement at the office that day: Here's a video of a tornado from the office window!
Views from “Airline Pilot Guy”, Captain Jeff, from his office window in the cockpit -cool!
(In one of them he looks sacred! That’s one sight you never want to see from the passenger seat!)
Sheesh, I just realized I did a typo and put sacred instead of scared! But you know... that must’ve been a Freudian slip... he IS kinda 'sacred'- he also has a podcast he does by himself called the Catholic Pilot- in which he shares all sorts of industry insider info., without much of his ‘sacred’ position.
Beautiful fall NYC view – from someone who has a black widow spider avatar picture (do I say yikes! or iew!?)
Gorgeous view- and double rainbow over boats at dock in a city on an island in the Norwegian sea.... One responder said “I would trade views with you anytime!” and she responded back:
“Somebody did trade. This is not my window anymore.: o("
She gets to watch little baby bluebirds from her office window...
An Indie author’s view (interesting description)
Video of snow falling outside home office in the 'burbs'...
A lucky country dweller shows us her view deer in snow.
One responder says they have a basement office in which to see “the neighbor’s asphalt driveway and the tires on their cars”, and another one commented they get a birdseye view of an industrial park (“ick”).
Amy gives us the view from her office – inside of big farm machine- a “windblower?”-in the Black Hills of South Dakota?
And here is a Flickr group of people sharing their office window views – over 450 of them!
Here’s mine today,
-although I’ve got windows on either side of the desk, this one had something other than little icicles and trees, where, if I stand up to look- there is the eyesore propane tank, the unused particle board rabbit hutch that was moved out of the way when we moved the shed to turn it into a chicken coop- and all the scrapwood and tires... which will be dealt with some day after the snow melts, lol. So I'll stick with the driveway window...
I have LOTS of pictures of this view... some with my dog sunning himself on the windowsill, some of the deer herds wandering thru or lazing on the lawn, or of a particular doe looking up at me with the funniest face. Well I'll share them if I can locate them. if you want me to (let me know).
Maybe this hasn't been the best post ever- but it sure gave me something else- something NEUTRAL to focus on. Sometimes that's worth sharing!
I’d love to see what your view is.
Hey, I have an idea- NEXT week we can share our DESK view (view OF THE DESK area!)
Hmm, does that give you a sudden sense of panic or despair? At least with that one, you have nothing to lose- when we share, we can get ideas on improvements- or (in case you jumped on this idea)...complements... lol.
