I'm one of the few office occupants who has a desk right by the window - and I'm the type who regularly stares out of it, waiting for inspiration to strike.

In summer, the sun hits my desk at the perfect angle when I arrive. In winter, rain streams by over the roof, leaving my window clear.

Today there are waterfalls everywhere on the mountain. A good bit of hard rain has every gorge streaming - though a cellphone camera certainly doesn't do it justice. At times the mountains disappear under cloud cover, gone behind sheets of rain - only to re-appear between showers. There was snow on them last winter. A rainbow in spring.

I think I'd go mad without a view...
