Kiss of the Sun

Endless Sanctuary, Highlands NC

There is . . .

There is . . . something to be said for mountain homes covered in a rhododendron forest. Rhodies in our mountains can grow to 30 feet tall! While absolutely lovely, it can sometimes be a bit dark, especially on a rainy day. Since this area is a rain forest, 4500 feet up, there is always rain here and there, especially to refresh and flourish the coming summer blooms that mass up in the spring and summer in this spectacular town.

There is . . .always on the plus side, the stunning possibility of feeling inside a tree as you lay on your back, swaying with the oak tree limb movement… on the sofa looking out the lodge fireside room skylights! Seeing the glints of light playing on the tree limbs and leaves makes you feel at one with the tree. That’s certainly much better than climbing 50 feet in the air to observe the same thing!

There is . . .something to be said for fading eyes of a once blossoming ‘sweet young thing’ as she appears at the front door looking across the room into the kitchen. Kazham! It’s light and delight in the kitchen with the new canned lights and the skylight just installed. The way the light plays on the antique wormy chestnut cabinets is awesome!

Remind me to quit trying to turn off the light switch—when it’s already off!

Let there be LIGHT! remodeling in process.
