The world in which we live

Ersatz ancestral home with pastiche façade and appointed with all the common trappings of false living. Who is fooled when the street is 12 feet from the front door, and the owner is spared the inconvenience of nature, relieved of the sacred responsibility of caring for land, wildlife, water, and soil? All that nourishes is raked and carted away with the trash. Thanks for planting a painful reminder of the world we pine for, but keep paving over with strip malls, asphalt and McMansions.

$25,000.00 for anyone connected with the building of this house. The inflated price includes punitive damages for inflicting disconnected architecture in the neighborhood and will be donated to preserve Angell Woods.
