As a child I remember spending what felt like hours sitting at my bedroom window. I’d watch the world outside, wonder where people were going and dream about where I’d go if I had the freedom to go anywhere I wanted.
It was a quiet street in the suburbs so any and every car or person that passed by was pretty exciting. Come to think of it, it was probably the dullness of life in the ‘burbs that propelled me to leave home at 17 and travel to the other side of the world. I knew there was more to be seen than the view from my bedroom window.
Sun is now at an age where he’s spending more and more time in his bedroom. I often find him standing at his window looking out.
First thing of a morning he opens his blinds and surveys the neighbourhood. As soon as I’ve kissed him goodnight and closed the door to his room, he jumps out of bed and goes to the window to look at the night sky. I find his binoculars beneath the window and his blinds open when I go in later to tuck him in.
I wonder what future he’s dreaming up as he looks out his bedroom window…
