The Perfect Place to Live


A somehow isolated, small brick house in the woods, surrounded by flowers and tall trees that provide a gently shade; a rocky access trail to the front door with a full variety of flowers decorating the path to a silent sanctuary; the perfect place to live in complete harmony with nature.

The gentle afternoon breeze will provide the sounds by the beautiful green leaves in the trees that move in waves creating varied shapes made out of color and light with the help of a warm summer sun, while the sounds of birds and several insects will provide the music, filling up the air with the songs of nature.

Pure, clean air coming from the windows will mix with the gentle smell of fresh, homemade cooking that waits at the table for the family to spend precious time together.

Then a walk to the nearby creek for some relaxation and leg stretching while filling up the senses with the beauty of nature: Sounds, smells, and colors will take home in the brain to create the perfect feeling and thoughts to a happily beating heart

All we need to add is a satellite system, internet and email service, digital HD TV, a quiet but powerful generator, a proper 4×4 sport utility parked in the back and a good supply of frozen food that only needs a couple of seconds in the microwave and we are all set.

Oh well, human nature!

Our hidden desire of going back to the origins but always bringing with us the comforts of man made technology.

    Yes, cell phone service, I forgot that, what was I thinking? Living like a cave man?

  2. Hi Raul,

    As I was reading this eloquently written post, it sounded like a travel brochure; so enticing.

    Then I got to the paragraph about the technology, etc..,, and the spell was broken.

    Seriously though, you are a fabulous writer.

    I tend to be a little “sarcastic”

    Thank you Barbara for your kind comments.

    Raul — I came to your site from Barbara’s post about gender. Given your avatar, I had to see if the face really was a guy. I wasn’t certain if it was an alien who just assumed we’d know it was a guy:~)

    I very much enjoyed the twist to this post. I love it when writers take me for a nice pleasant walk and everything seems so peaceful. Then they make it perfect by giving me a good laugh at the end:~) I love to laugh!

    I enjoyed my visit very much!

    Hi Sara,

    Did you see the resemblance between the avatar and the face? Clearly a male alien!

    Thank you for your kind comments, I’m glad you enjoyed the visit.

  4. Hi Raul,
    Like Sara, I came to your post from Barbara’s site, too. I love the alien image next to the real thing. Or is the alien real and your photo the stand-in?

    I laughed when I read your final paragraph. Wow, that’s so true. I’ve lived in California for the past 10 years and I see what you’re saying all around me. Why would anyone need a Hummer in Southern California? I’ll never understand it. ;)

    Nice to meet you!

    Hi Lori, nice to meet you too, and thank you for stopping by.

    About your question: I am the green one to the right…the image to the left is the cover I use in this planet 

    To be honest, I’m also guilty at times of trying to retain technology while longing for nature…at the other hand, I find difficult to post in a blog using a flat rock and a chisel.
