It’s nice to wash your utensils looking out into the sky through the sacred window with a mild breeze blowing through or the rain tapping its toes on your window pane gives a clean and lush feel to the kitchen, to you and your home.
Besides the supremely divine feeling of looking out at the thrilling sights outside your windows there are some other things which we receive with the window facing sink. A window is an experience in its self. Let your thoughts wander away and afar. With the dim sky of the morning mist, the breeze cool and wet hugging your face from between the curtains that surface the window. Rain pouring out from the clouds washes the pane and your face as the utensils and their wetness and the rain meet at some juncture, giving you the happiest feeling of your life. The dim light of the sky with the moon shining through in its hazel brightness and the stars grinning from there somewhere and you, mesmerized as the moonshine pours down on your hands as they work with the soap suds surrounding your plates and spoons in the warm water in the sink.
