What is it about outbuildings that cause such a broad smile? Their quaintness always elicits a contented response. Maybe it’s because, unlike us, they are unburdened by the stress of program. Free from the tedious load of daily need, these follies soar in imagination and invariably charm the landscape.
Situate these enchanters near a lake or bay and their allure increases as they echo across the water’s mirror surface. Their reflections become both literal and meditative. Finding refuge in these structures is a serene joy; their simple offerings harbor the soul and calm a troubled mind.
So prop your feet on the rail, gaze over the water and know solace indeed. After all, nature’s basins are excellent brain washers.
