a grown-up fort

after being in vegas for 3 days i'm ready for a retreat. so imagine my delight in finding the exact place i'd love to run off to this very minute when perusing kirtsy this morning. . . . . the shack at hinkle farms. designed by broadhurst architects, it reminds me of a grown-up fort, complete with the basic necessities including a great view. and even more wonderful, it's completely off the grid. i just started digging into the sakyong's latest book, ruling your world, and oh how would i love to have a sitting practice in this adult fort to really take in all the wisdom i'm enjoying from the book {i highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of experiencing it yet}.

Wow! Look at that view!

And you can even play darts. They have all the bases covered.

yea jendita, we should get one for you & one for me on either side of the same valley. then if we need something we're there, but mostly we can just hibernate in our lil' retreats. ;o)

hi tb ~ i think in my own version i'd like to have a drawing easle instead of the dart board, but i'd certainly take it as is too. so fab!

hi sweet paul ~ i hope your dreams come true soon! and, if you get one before me, can i come visit sometimes? ;o)

dear julochka ~ please send photos of your garden writing house. i'm so jealous and want to live vicariously thru you.

tara ~ when you move to sf maybe you and tangobaby & i can invest in one to share outside the city {sonoma perhaps} and we can trade off weekends of retreat there.....a girl can dream....
