I have agoraphobia, which can mean either I have a fear of large spaces or I have a fear of leaving the house. For me it is leaving the house, and so much of the past six years has been spent inside my fifth-floor apartment in Montclair, a suburb just outside of New York City. Though it has let up significantly over the years I am still pretty much a prisoner when winter comes. Sky-watching has always been a past-time of mine, especially now that I have the view that I do, and it helps ease the pain when I am too sick to go out.
This is my life through my window.
