So close to the green light

Last week I reread “The Great Gatsby” as well as rewatched the 2014 movie version by Baz Luhrman. Love them both and it got me thinking about how close we come to living our ideal life. It seems living in the city, I dream of living at the beach in a farmhouse with chickens and bee hives next to a greenhouse built of old windows. Well I found another book that is very close to my ideal- “Farmhouse Modern” by Terry John Woods. With a dash of salvage, antique and modern sensibilities this magical book provides the basis to create the ideal house I once thought was just sliver of green light across the bay.
