a hope for a view

Building an addition (which includes a second story) to our home brings with it many benefits. A lot more room being one of my favorites. But the one positive that usurps the dream of having more room for our family of both two legged, and four legged members, is the idea of having a peaceful place to write. In our second story master bedroom I was going to place my dream desk in the corner, facing the beautiful mountains. I have pondered and anticipated the renovations and building for a few months, so excited to have a place where my imagination could run free. Imagine: no toys on the floor, ready to trip me if I budge. No paperwork teetering on the side of the family desk, waiting for someone’s attention (probably mine). No staring at a wall devoid of inspiration. Nope, it would be magnificent.
That is until yesterday, when I stared up at the void of space where the second story would one day exist. To my utter dismay I noticed that the neighbors towering evergreen tree would no doubt block my view of the mountain from my new window. I had hoped the tree would be in just the right spot, so it wouldn’t disrupt my desired outcome, but it seems I misjudged its existence within the space.

Knowing now is better than finding out later. I will have to look for my creative motivation either in the pine tree or a photograph strategically placed upon my desk. I believe I will opt for the latter.
