Windows That Lead To Discovery
A window of opportunity opened for me and my family this weekend. This window led us to discover fascinating creatures of the sea such as these adorable seal lions. My son was laughing and clapping his hands during the Cannery Row Caper show which featured the funny and talented detective comedy duo, Clyde and Seamore.
The story unfolds when fishes were disappearing from a local cannery and it’s up to the experienced detectives of Sea World to discover the perpetrator.
There were two surprises during the show. The first one was finding out who did the crime. The second and most fun was the unexpected huge water splash on the crowd sitting at the first half of the front middle rows. The screams mixed with shivering laughter and “I can’t believe it” facial expressions were priceless. Although most had fun getting wet, two couple stood up for several minutes looking annoyed. They should have thought about it when they sat on the bench that says, “splash zone.” If the sea lions could talk, I’m sure they would have said, “hello people, it says splash zone in bold letters!” I wanted to stay on the “splash zone” and get my dose of excitement but my son preferred to stay on the “safe zone.” Safety vs thrill? My son won without question.
The Two Way Window
As I watched the performers, it made me realize that there are two sides to a window. There is the one where we reveal ourselves. How the world see us. Some of which we can control while others we can’t. A lot involves our total personality. Others are often just happy, funny and lovable because that is who they are. While others are unpredictable like the weather. Today they’re smiling, tomorrow they are sad and distant. A few seems to just hate almost everything around them and those very few want others to feel miserable as well. In my lifetime, I met a rare few whom I wished I never crossed path with but I can’t bargain with destiny.
The other side of the window is our vision and perception of the world around us. Is it beautiful, hopeful, full of potentials and wonders? Is it exciting and fun? Is it positive and promising? Is it chaotic, painful, sad and negative? Whatever it is, those perceptions can be change if we want to. Mind over heart or heart over mind. Whatever can control our thoughts and emotions the most.
The Window That Promised A Fun And Memorable Day
There are days that when I look outside my window, I feel like jumping out at that very instant because of a view so enticing that all I could think of is “fun, fun, fun.” These window views never fail to deliver its promises of happy and exciting memories.
To finally say goodbye to Summer, we visited Galveston Beach for the last time before Autumn takes full control of the season. On our walks towards the east side of the beach, we found a souvenir shop that would remind me and everyone who had been part of the beach the beautiful, happy and family-bonding moments of that Summer.
The Perfect Sunrise Outside My Car Window
On my way home from my work after a long and busy graveyard shift, I was greeted by one of the most inspiring sunrise that I had ever seen. I had to stop and watch it rise for several minutes. It’s not everyday that chances like this happens. I was right because a week after, “Fall Back” time kicked in as a way to save energy for Autumn and Winter. Now, when I leave from work, the sun has fully set and a new day has already started.
What is the most memorable view you had outside your window that held you breathless?
Thank you for sharing your time reading this post. I hope it gave you a wonderful glimpse of my world looking through your side of the window. Have a blessed day my friend.
