The house hunt

I realize I'm in the minority, but I love house hunting. Roaming around a house that's for sale, poking around the bedrooms, living room, and kitchen, is an adventure; it's an opportunity to imagine a future life.

What will I cook in that kitchen with the antique oven? Will it inspire home baked pies and fruity cookies like the ones my grandmother made? Which room will be the scene of my children's constant struggle over toys? Where will I place my beloved queen sized bed? Which bedroom will I awake in on a cold winter morning? Where will I pull on my fluffy slippers and robe in order to pad to the kitchen and brew coffee? Which room will be the site of personal restoration, where I place my Pilates equipment? What window will I look out as I write: just where will brilliant ideas come to me?

Sure. Sometimes these questions require an active imagination:

Fortunately, I have one.
