I have thought about the exhilaration I feel when I breathe in the salty ocean air, the beauty of the high dessert in spring, the freedom I feel when looking out over the endless prairies of the Midwest but, not speaking for anyone else, I must at some point before I leave this earth...live in the mountains.
I stood captivated looking through the viewfinder. Seeing the house accompanied by only sounds of birds and the occasional rustling of leaves here and there. Off in the distance was the crisp multi-layered unending rush of stream water over the rocks. Taking the picture from the darkness of the thick canopy, I felt like a voyeur of sorts. Once out into the open where the house stood, the trees opened up to nothing but a robin egg sky. Whoever, built this house so many years ago must have surely shared my love of nature.
Later I read about this house...built in the early 1900's...it was a Sears and Roebuck kit! In the early days of Sears and Roebuck...they actually did offer house kits though the catalog. True to Sears's early mission statement: Simple, affordable and available to all. I am guessing that if Sears would have stayed true to it's original mission statement, they might still be a force to reckon with. Just my opinion.
