The Good Life - 04/28/2023 - The house at Mochimune *

I found the most delightful home yesterday. A home for sale. It’s a little more costly than what we plan to spend, but oh, what a place! And I’ve been to that very spot twice before, even stood in front of that very house—OK, it was the house next door—and wondered and dreamed of what it would be like to live there. And it wasn’t because of the house, the house didn’t really matter, it was the place, and the area, and that community that drew my eye and caused me to stop my bicycle then to think aloud “This would be someplace to live!” For various reasons I know that home isn’t the one, and that’s alright. But for some minutes yesterday I lived there in my mind and it was good, a good home and community for everything intangible in my life; an airy place of dreams like heaven might be, a place others do seemingly wish might exist. I guess it’s good to dream from time to time about what is ideal, even if we know that what is ideal is rarely anything more than what is already real.
