House of Dreams

Some people fly in their dreams, save the planet, exact revenge, show up naked.

I dream of houses. I dream them inside and out. I dream balconies and gardens, verandas and pathways. I explore, turning up secret rooms, whole other floors where marvelous things wait. There'll be swimming pools and libraries, guest bedrooms, curiosity cabinets filled with mysteries. I dream hidden passageways, secret cupboards, attic spaces and butler's pantries.

A house is a great place for dreaming.
