A View From My Window

A few posts ago I expressed an interest in taking photographs from my living room window, naming the post- 'A view from my window'. Well, that hasn't been the only picture I have taken. I don't take a photo every day, It's only when I see something beautiful that the camera is taken out super quick so I can try and capture the same thing that I can see. Although, the eye is the best camera out there, I like to think if you know how to then the camera is just as good, even though sometimes, good imagination goes a hand in hand with it. Especially if the photo is of some giant trees and rooftops. Which is what I tend to take photographs of. At least it's not photos of my neighbours... that would be not surprising of me but no.
The other day I was looking out of the window, it was 5pm, it still looked like early morning, with the crispy light shining on the rooftops. It looked 'tres' fresh and the air was just cool. So out came the camera:

It's amazing what you can find out of your own window, I don't even have a garden but I feel lucky enough to be able to see this every day:)

My mother was hospitalised two days ago with stomach and chest pains, she is out now:) and a lot better:):)
I live quite far away from her and told her I was going to catch the next train out but she told me not to worry and not to come, still I worried the entire night. I rang her a few hours ago, she sounded terrible.
It scared me.
It also made me angry with myself.

I began to wonder why I lived in Cambridge and not nearer to her? Why could I not just up and leave? Is it easy to leave one life and build another?

As I type right now, I am looking at my furniture, at my precious books! I know I can easily move them. I look at my walls and I realise that I can have them replaced. But I wonder if it's really that easy to leave what you know, love and cherish.
Am I being selfish? Because I certainly don't enjoy living here because of the distance. I won't go into the nitty-gritty of why we live so far away from each other because by the time I finish, you'll be crying and I will have finished my first autobiography.

So, I sat and I thought long and hard. I decided to move there in 4 years, after I finish my studies. MUM is happy with that. Man friend is also happy. The plants are happy as long as I keep watering them. I am also happy.
I have a goal, a real goal... not a fantasy goal- Johhny Depp will never leave his wife for me. So I know the 4 year plan is definitely going to happen; I believe in it and it's not hard to reach.

(i'm sorry if this is not how a post is supposed to end. I would rather see you finish this post with a smile :)

(2013: update: mother has decided to move down to me in a few years and Johnny Depp has left his wife but is currently dating a super model... chances not as slim anymore...)
