I looked out the glass wall in front of me and sighed at the beautiful view. Mountains, treetops, buildings, city lights and a busy street were all there. It was breathtaking.
As I looked over the treetops, I noticed that the city was so far away. Beyond the trees, the city lights glistened beneath the mountains beyond them. They sat there, in the distance, just minding their own business.
In front of me, was just…nature. There were houses within these trees, roads that winded within the small areas. The dirty paths led to small houses; they were small but cozy and the view they each had was absolutely astonishing.
To my left was a little lit up road. Buildings flashed business signs and cars drove with their headlights on. It was a very busy little street. I could only see a section of it due to the drop of the road as it led into the city, but I knew how full of life it truly was.
As I stood there, at the cozy little house, on top of the world, I yearned to be able to stay. I wanted to be able to wake up to this view every single day. I wanted to be able to watch the sunset, as I just did, quickly vanishing beyond the mountains in unbelievable time. I wanted to stay and feel the nature around me.
But, of course, that wasn’t possible.
