Things are not always as they seem.

I was in midtown, in a very fancy, modern office building, visiting an immaculate office, then I moved towards the window…


The window looked out revealing not only the view across 6th Avenue but also a space beyond the outer wall of the room which as it turned out was not the outer wall of the building. The area didn’t look quite finished to me. The odd area of ragged incompletion surprised me. It was cut off from the building’s occupants, beyond the window and yet someone somehow traversed that small space in order to put a plant on the unfinished window sill.
