Breath

“Breathe, just take deep breaths…” I remind myself, more often than I care to admit. As my eyes become accustomed to the morning light I kick the covers off my sweat soaked body.

It’s a brand new day, the sun is shining, I can hear the sounds of Che making coffee in the kitchen and I have a great job to go – and yet some part of my sub-conscious hasn’t cottoned on to the fact that there is no need for the fight or flight instinct.

Something I was dreaming of perhaps? Something I am afraid of perhaps? I take a deep breath and need to concentrate on taking the next one, deeply as well. And the next one, until my mind and body calm down and acclimatise to the sanctuary my bedroom offers.


As always, thanks for reading, and please leave a comment!

 

Wednesday Windows #2: Table Mountain

Middle-of-the-week creativity slump? This is the second Wednesday  Windows feature.

I will be posting a photo of windows (the ones you look out of, not the ones that are prefixed by the word “Microsoft”). I seem to take a lot of them wherever I go, so it must count as a fascination or maybe just plain obsession.

Wednesday Windows on Wide Eyed In Wonder 11-Jun-2015

I’m in the middle-of-the-week creativity slump, so I’m starting a weekly Wednesday feature – Wednesday Windows on Wide Eyed in Wonder.

I will be posting a photo of windows (the ones you look out of, not the ones that are prefixed by the word “Microsoft”). I seem to take a lot of them wherever I go, so it must count as a fascination or maybe just plain obsession.

You are welcome to join in the feature – there is no theme other than “windows”. If you do join leave the link to your post in the comments below.

As you can see this is by no means a professionally run weekly feature or challenge. I’m doing it to indulge my fascination, so if you have one too, please do join.

The window below belongs to an old building situated in a narrow road in Lisbon’s Bairro Alto.  The buildings have been standing for over a hundred years. The  building on the left is now being renovated, top to bottom. I can’t wait to see it. The lamp on the bottom of the photo was once gas-fired. I wonder, as I look at these windows, at the people who looked out of them on to the street below. Who were they? Were they happy? What was their story?
