Five years ago I moved into my apartment.
It took me quite a while to find it and I have been blessed by it ever since. What a great place with an amazing view of the city.
Yet, it took me about a year until I finally walked up the street I lived in. I was always so busy that I only walked the other way. This time I walked up the hill and discovered an outlook I had not expected.
You can see the entire area if you just walk up a little higher. Hills and little villages tucked in the valleys in between.
Beautiful sunsets and sometimes cloudy skies.
A width that sets your imagination free and allows your soul to breathe.
You discover beauty, no matter what season. Snow covered pastures, the smell of spring blossoms or freshly mowed grass.
Ever since that first walk up there, the hill has become my go to place. Whenever I feel overwhelmed and stress I walk up there. When I can’t hear anything anymore than white noise I leave everything behind and walk up to where I can see clearly again.
Welcome to Day 7 of 31 Days of Mundane Narratives! For the month of October I will be a storyteller. Together with a few friends we will browse the forgotten photos in our galleries and tell the stories that are so often lost in busyness.

Hi Katha! There is nothing mundane about your writing. 🙂
Loved this: “A width that sets your imagination free and allows your soul to breathe.” (deep sigh)
So glad to see you also writing for the challenge!
Aw, thank you, Shauna!
I love the reminder that we can see more if we just go up a little bit higher. It applies to so many things! Visiting from FMF.
I love how you’re reminding us all to look for the extraordinary in the midst of the ordinary.
Thank you, Tara!
Happy to find your blog as I am raising two TCKs. Love this series. There is so much beauty and wonder in the every day. I’ve loved getting to experience life through the eyes of children for this reason.
Great to hear from you, Amber! Where are you based? Raising TCKs is fun…
I love your title and the calm this post brought. Your FMF neighbor.
Thank you, Sabrina!
“A width that sets you imagination free nd allows your soul to breathe.” Exactly, and you said this perfectly!
