Office with a View

The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.
Kate Chopin, American author (1850-1904) in The Awakening (1899)

Though my office lacks windows, through my door I can look past the cubicles and out onto magnificent masts and water that passes out to the lake and the ocean beyond. The view inspires my imagination to take split-second restorative journeys. What a marvelous window on the world!

For a memorable evocation of the sea have a look for Elgar's 'Sea Pictures' song cycle.
Here's a sample: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_Corals_Lie

Happy 'split-second restorative journey' !
