You’ve probably heard of, or seen the movie, “A Room With A View.” But what I passed on my way home yesterday was definitely a view with a room.I was driving along my usual 2-mile route home from HolEssence, minding my own business, when all of a sudden the ivy climbing this beautiful brick building catches my attention.
“Look at me, just look at me, will you?!” it cries. I slow down to take a look. Not just a cursory glace, but a real look.
The view is amazing! Just look at how the windows are barely peeking out from behind the ivy—like knowing eyes peering out from behind long bangs.
There are cars behind me so I continue past, slowly. thinking, Thinking, Thinking. It looks like the perfect writer’s loft. No. It looks like a Hobbit’s abode.
Knowing I’ve got the camera in the car, I make a right-hand turn as soon as I can, and circle back.
What comes to mind as you look at the windows winking out from behind the ivy?
