Following up from our most recent family gathering at the lake, here is a glimpse of some of the more subtle retreats that are tucked away around the property and which provide the greatest rejuvenating power of everything there is to enjoy. You see, toward the end of the week, we actually had seventeen people trying to co-exist up there. Fortunately, with the way that the Home and the Grounds are Composed, you would never feel overcrowded.

or..Watching the Kids
Having a Quiet Conversation
Taking a Stroll ~ Usually with a Dog
As I age, my appreciation for gardens and landscapes is certainly expanding when taken in consideration of the entire composition of the Home. There is so much here to enjoy and it definitely completes the place.

And, there are places where we can all come together. What is it about fire and water anyway?
Many a evenings were closed out right here. Ashes Smoldering, Little Ones asleep in a lounge chair, Stars Bright in the Sky and a Calmness Like No Other.
Then there are times when you just need to slip away.

What I Wouldn't Give To Know What She's Thinking...
As you can tell, I am passionate about Homes and what it means to have achieved a Well Composed Home. In no way do I feel that the home would need to be grand or of a certain price level to be held in such regard. What it does need is to have the careful attention granted to it where the owners personality is reflected and where there is a continuity of style, character, elegance and beauty maintained throughout the entirety of the Home. It takes introspection, planning and courage, but, in the end, a piece of Art is created.
