Our new house in the country,



Very nice!

My brother and his wife share 150 acres in the Texas Hill Country with their daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandchildren. Each of the houses has a 25-mile view to the sunset. There's a creek, hills, oak trees and grassland. There are horses, three or four cows, deer, rabbits, coyotes, lots of birds, the full deal.

I love to visit, but I'm a city boy. Two or three days in the country are enough for me!

City boy... I felt the same way until a few years ago, and for 25 years I earnestly detested leaving the epicenter of the universe, New York City. As I age, however, I really appreciate the country, and found the city dirty, noisy and overcrowded, with an unhappy population. But as I said, it has to be a symptom of my age.

The price of that view is a steep -and I mean steep- hill we must climb to get home! Once there, however, it is breathtaking.

This is the a ctual view I am looking at right now.
The bright spots on my trees being apricote blossom. Sorts like ironic edelweiss on a crushed Tahiti.

There was a time when I was very proud of being a New Yorker. But as said above, I now love the country, and made California my home. So yes, West Coast, Dude!

Next stop....? Back to my original home, in the old continent.

Would that be Italy?
It has got some really beautiful spots there too. Not to mention the flavors of cuisine!
( Only annoying can be silly machos.)
I have been to Apulia ( had a girl friend from there), Rome ( in childhood. Boy, was it pestered with traffic smog back then! I vomitted in the tramway, with the service ladies jumping on my old lady then ) and in Milan / Lake Como ( quite an eye candy ) and across the border from Ticino.

And I was checking for eventual settling there too, but Italian real estate has become so expensive even yet in remote areas.

California can be quite the place though, and the picture you took looks very promissing. ( Guess you might even have pumas there?)

I am thirsting after rural beauty, however it be good with urban commodity not too far away.

it´s small boxes where we grow onions, potatos, diffrent herbs etc
strawberrys.

since the garden doesn´t have a lot of flat ground this makes it easier.

I really hope so, then we can see more of you in that wonderful country. We'd love to live in Italy one day.

You mean you never ever go upstairs to any other room in a house and play the guitar ...?
so your guitars are stuck in the subterranean underworld of no sunshine and have vitamin D deficiency ....?

Well if there is no other window possible then photo of your studio i suppose ..it is after all what you see.........

Absolutely, perhaps this summer we could organize another playdate.

And, Toddk, that was one witty line:
"I'm in my basement studio, which has no windows.
The only windows i have is my computer"

I will definitely borrow it.

RE: Whats outside of your window? (in reply to gj Michelob

Last spring I spent six weeks revisiting Italy, one of my oldest and best friends in Munich, the ancestral haunts of my family in breezy and cool Norfolk, and the warmer climes of Seville, Cordoba and Granada. Each has strong attractions for me.

But for beautiful scenery, lovely cities and friendly and charming people, the Amalfi coast, Rome, Siena and Venice took the prize.

Spain has a more austere beauty and culture, gripping for me personally, but Italy….such a pleasure.
