What is different about the place I live in currently (apart from it being a different country and such other minor details) is that I don’t have a view of the distance from any window of the house. For one thing, there is an insect screen that covers all the open windows. This limits visibility to a great extent. And more importantly, all I can see from any window on this level (a floor above ground-level) is the road and the lawn.
I want to have a view of the ocean. I want to feel the sea breeze upon my face.
