Whilst I was sick in hospital for a week last week, I had access to the ward's "Patient Lounge" - a nice quiet and separate room, where, as an introvert, I could find some 'alone' time to 'recharge', after the constant in-your-face business (and beautiful care, mind you!) of a bustling sleepless hospital ward.
Being two stories up, and facing a large panoramic window with an uninterrupted view across to the east ranges (a view of about 25 kms!), was a gorgeous chance for me to feel refreshed and recharged, on an emotional and psyche level - all in the comfort of a big plush chair!
Yes, this is the view, across to the east of Bathurst!!!
I can't really describe it... this giant window with the spectacular view, became my "Living Landscape Painting", as I could sit for hours and simply watch the world go by.
For cars whizzing past on their daily routines, to horses and cows feeding, to birds sweeping by, to small planes and gliders floating upon endless skies, to clouds changing shape and form, against the magical backdrop of distant green wooded ranges, to the changing colours of the sun moving across the sky...
It was a "Living Landscape Painting" - the only way I can describe it.
And it really helped me to recharge my inner batteries.
That's one of the reasons why I love living here, in my little home in Bathurst - it has a similar glorious view. But also - living in the country... you can have endless views across fields and skies, uninterrupted by a wall of red-tiled roofs.
This is my view, from my front door!
And I'm loving it.
