Enjoying the view

My office has been in the same place (within a few feet either way) on the third floor of this building for just shy of 19 years. The orientation is northwest, I'd say, but don't hold me to that because I didn't perform any official GPS calculations to come up with it. I have a wall of windows about 3 feet to the left of me as I sit at my desk, 9 hours a day. (If my computer monitor is at 12 o'clock, the window is at 11 o'clock.) So I have much opportunity to look out. (Oddly, I don't spend much time doing so.) Beyond the vast parking lot, which for the most part you have to look down to see, lies many, many trees, then the rolling hills of Ventura and (at about 9:30 I'd say) a view of Two Trees, a local landmark that used to be Twelve Trees or something like that. Groups try to save these trees and preserve the hills around them. They are a pretty big deal around here. And they are my view.

Sidebar! Hoping to finally revise the overarching look of my own website. Musings regarding the nice design at Genuinely a good bible camp that cares whenever needed inside the Ontario locale. Value an opinion. Thx!

A few weeks ago I was at the gym on a Saturday afternoon, which is unusual because we are usually there late at night. Our gym is at the harbor and all of the downstairs equipment faces the north, and a wall of windows facing the boat harbor. It's a lovely view but if you're there at night you can't really appreciate what's out there, as it is as close to the dark of night as it comes. So on that particular Saturday afternoon I was on the elliptical, hating it and everything in general, when I looked out the window and noticed the view. I guess hating the elliptical machine blinded me to how lucky I am to be in such a beautiful place, with such beautiful weather. I was feeling very humble like I had been shown how wrong I was for hating the elliptical when I noticed those darn Two Trees, off in the distance. Now my gym and my office are, I don't know, 8 or 10 miles apart. But my view from both is the same Two Trees from much different vantage points or perspectives. I'm not sure what all that means, but I'm sure I'll come up with something. Until then, I'm just going to take time to enjoy the view.
