What They See From Their Windows

"Naked Lady" flowers, 2012

Have I told you about Windows On The World?  It is a wonderful series.  Writers from around the world share what they see from their windows and Matteo Pericoli draws those windows.  

Take a look.

  3. I'm so happy to have found this series. Everything about it appeals. My window looks onto an overgrown lawn thick with fallen leaves. Spider web on a geranium, and a mercifully clear blue sky.

  5. So evocative. I visited Keats' House in London a few weeks ago and stood in his bedroom for a good twenty minutes gazing down into the garden, thinking 'this is where he stood looking into the garden'.

  7. That's a pretty amazing project. As a writer, I find myself very interested in what other writers surround themselves with.

  8. thank you Denise. I love this series---both drawings and stories. Yes, it is good to be able to write anywhere, but I think we all have our favorite niches where the creative flow is readily accessed.
