Tidbits of Inspiration: America’s Castle Age
I saw this rather fun link this morning… It’s a slide-show of some real estate properties available across the U.S. – all of them castles. Perhaps that’s a little silly – but I’ve always wanted to live in a castle.
In fact, there’s a small castle in my neighborhood. It doesn’t hold a candle to these American Castles, but I like to walk by with Shasta on evening walks, and take a moment to admire the gumption to build a castle in an American neighborhood. (In all honesty, though, I feel the stonework on my local castle is somewhat lacking. What stone there is looks like sandstone, perhaps, but it’s used in such a way that is not terribly attractive, unlike the castles in today’s link.)
Anyway… there’s something inspiring about the idea of castles, to be sure… but there’s surely something else that can be inspired by the idea of castles scattered across the American landscape… What story ideas does this inspire in you?
