I live on the 20th floor in an apartment. We have a small balcony off the living room and it has become my favourite place at home.
I can see lots of interesting things from the balcony. There are many nice architectural buildings in my neighbourhood. I can also see the mountains clearly in the distance on a fine day.
I like to look at the green trees and the birds that come to perch on the tree boughs. I especially love looking at the ever-changing clouds. Sometimes I can make out interesting forms in those majestic clouds. The animal forms are the best.
It is always cool and pleasant on the balcony. I like the gentle breezes blowing at my face. I relish the fresh, crisp air in the early morning by taking in long, deep breaths. My Tai Chi master says it is very healthy to do so.
