For a while ...

... just stop and look out of the window. 

Consult the genius of the place in all;
That tells the waters or to rise, or fall;
Or helps th'ambitious hill the heav'ns to scale,
Or scoops in circling theatres the vale; 
Calls in the country, catches opening glades, 
Joins willing woods, and varies shades from shades, 
Now breaks, or now directs, th'intending lines;
Paints as you plant, and, as you work, designs.

Alexander Pope on the Genius Loci.

For a while.
