My Kind Of Window

My kind of window is…

Where the ocean sunrise greets me when I wake up.

    • Our dream windows mirror the things that makes us happy. The beach makes me and my family happy. Somehow, it also reminds us of home in the islands thousand of miles away. Thanks.

    Your window is my window, my friend. I want that ocean view.

    • That’s what I tell my wife, “One ocean view please,” but then she’ll say, “One Mall view please.” So we try to meet halfway. Some days I got my ocean view, other days, her kind of window view. Perhaps one day, when we both simply want to chill, the ocean view will be more permanent. Thanks.

    • Thanks. It’s one place me and my family had a lot of happy memories. Leaving was really hard but then reality is, we need to go back to Houston and back to work. When we miss the beach, we head to Galveston Island which is 45 miles from the city.

    Your kind of window makes me feel freedom :)
    And, answering you question – my kind of window is where I am able to communicate with others – my phone, my eyes, my daughter’s eyes, and many more.

    • To wake up alive, healthy, surrounded by our family, that in itself is a priceless gift of a greater window called “Life.” Thanks my friend. Perhaps one day, we get to see in person our side of the world.

  18. Those are some nice windows for sure! My favorite windows would have to open up on nature too, either a lot of green, or some body of water. Or on my kids playing outside. That would be nice too. :-)

    Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. Happy New Year my friend! I love all your windows and looks like your son does too. I love the morning picture if my mornings looked like that I’d probably be more of a morning person. But I like your sunset one because it’s calming to me. Your son looking out for his childhood adventures is one I’m very familiar with too. I love all your pictures and hope windows in 2014 bring you some more awesome :)

    • Thanks my friend. I wish you and your family an exciting New Year full of happy and fun blessings. When I look at your adventures with your kids, I too see something so familiar as a parent. Legos, Dinos, endless days of play and creativity. Something that make us smile anytime, anyday.

    The best kind of window is the one that encourages you to go out and explore. The scenes from some of the windows you have shown us would certainly do this.

  27. I’m so pleased Island Traveler that you had a great Holiday, you deserve to have a good rest and enjoy yourself. I know your type of work is full on and involves pressure in keeping to time tables etc and also physical and mental stamina, as well as offering care and compassion both in words and actions and I have no doubt you do it all very well and with dedication but it is good to see your windows of time out, we all need a break, it we are to continue to offer our best.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne
