A house

1 comment

You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?

We’ll build a house without architectonic barriers, with everything needed for a person in a wheelchair. Wide corridors, wide doors, a bathroom with all what a paralytic person may need and big windows so there will be always a lot of natural light. Around the house we will have a nice garden with flowers for all the seasons and trees. We will have a fir, almond trees and an olive tree. We will keep a little orchard with tomatoes, strawberries and fruit trees, to have some fresh food at home. In the backyard we will have also a swimming pool. I hope the financial resources available include money to pay people to work in the garden, the orchard and the swimming pool maintenance, because I don’t think I could do it by myself. It’s easy to dream when money is not an issue. But how different is real life!

A Plot of Earth.
