we need forts

It hit me this morning that, no matter how much we dress them up…. or how “grownupify” we make our homes….what we are really pushing for is a fort.

We need a tree house, a big cardboard box with some holes cut for windows and doors, a tent (!)….we need something that mimics the feeling we got when we made something for ourselves so “way back when”.

Biggest, nicest, most envy worthy….all are great things to shoot for, I suppose….but at the end of the day, it’s just cool to have something warm to lay down in.

Check out this guy’s tents….I haven’t seen anything quite like this before.

I’ve heard that a home is a good investment….an “investment”….and I know that can be true….but the real payoff is something pretty different than something we can put in a bank account.

Big people’s forts.

Don’t tell anyone that I know the secret.
