The overlook !!

The hanging balcony,the round balcony running around the perimeter of the house or the straight balcony along the front of the house-Whatever it is, I absolutely need to have a balcony…they are my breathing spaces....They are my refuge from the present and a time machine to my past ..These jutting out structures- I hold so dear to me,without them I feel like asphyxiating ..Whatever a balcony was to Juliet,it couldn’t have been less for me !! Whatever a balcony was to Monet, it was almost the same for me with let’s say a “ minor “ difference- I cannot wield the brush like he did,but that didn’t stop me from painting a thousand suns and moons,of the ablaze sky and trees- all in the empty canvases of my mind….How else would I dream of catching hold of those fluffed up clouds and want to feel their texture between my fingers,if I haven’t had a balcony to call my own ???


  1. hi sulagna,
    I too feel the same about balconies...there are always some special moments in the balcony ... the view and breeze always uplift us to a world away from all our miseries..i love balconies which are higher as people look tiny and vehicles look like toys..and i feel how tiny we must be from gods balcony : )...our problems too must be very tiny for him and we make such a fuss about our little problems...the balcony brings me closer to god...i do my yoga n meditations in the balcony ....and my relaxed and lovely moments with my hubby ... thanks for your post which makes me happy to read and view life in a wonderful way

  3. Very true words..balcony is indeed a place which keeps us away ( atleast for sometime) frm the day-to-day sufferings of life. I too stand in the balcony when the cool breeze helps me to forget the worries of life ( u know it :D)
