Each day I look out my window and see the horizon filled with skyscrapers. The buildings reach up towards the sky, blocking the view of nature.
There have been times when I have looked at the horizon and seen a well-known skyline: the skyline of Toronto.
But I prefer a more natural horizon. When we were in Mauritius, I enjoyed the skyline with the palm trees silhouetted against the fading light.
I enjoyed watching the sun set below the sea, lighting both the skies and water.
I enjoyed the horizon from the beach during the daytime. The sight of the sand and sea had a peaceful and calming effect on me.
I enjoy, too, the horizons one sees of the mountains: the colours and shapes that are shown against the blue sky.
Looking into the far distance from a Swazi mountainside always brings me joy. I admire the shapes and the majesty of nature’s beauty.
Thankfully I get a chance to change the horizons that I see. I may see a horizon filled with man-made structures everyday; but I do prefer the one created by Nature.
Which horizons are your favourite to see?
