Weekend Writing Prompt — Vista

When we lived in the city
Our home was surrounded by apartment buildings
We had no scenic views
Then we moved into the ‘burbs
And got a beautiful vista

    One of my sons and I looked at a property in the city that had a slightly-distant vista of the river, the train tracks, even an attractive angle on a bridge going over to the green landscape beyond. I noticed that this was unusual; it was quite a draw. (Strangely, no one pointed it out… not the listing, not the agent. I suppose it wasn’t guaranteed to remain anyway.) I’d say we basically didn’t buy it because I couldn’t get past the fact it was on something like the fifth floor and had large windows that swung wide open. It could’ve been okay. But maybe not. I certainly would’ve liked those windows. It turns out (in my opinion) a regular home is a better place from which to enjoy a view.

      It was definitely one of the main reasons we bought this house.
