Windows on the World
If I had money to burn, I’d hire an architect to design a house for me, art to put in it, and an interior decorator.
I’d tell the architect to look at this garage/horsebarn/spaceship part of a historical home in the next town to me.
It makes me smile every time I go by it. Horses lived there first– automobiles, next. Then, by the look of the porthole windows, I think the owner had a fondness for the sea or spaceships.
I’d tell the architect to build me a house that makes a passerby stop, smile, and then continue on with his journey.
