buying a house has not been on my list of things to do.
i have a life to live, stories to tell, experiences to gather.
caring for a house is not what you do when there is still life left.
caring for a house is what you do when you’re ready to plant tomatoes and sit between the bushes on the stone bench remembering the loves you’ve traveled the world with and the children you’ve made smile.
the house is what happens when there is nothing left in the world to see. when you’ve fallen in love for the last time.
but who am i kidding?
some of you will never see the world. some of you will settle for the man/woman at the grocery store at the end of your block.
so the house makes sense.
