    +93. That's precisely where I am now. In a basement apartment, no less.

    Actually, I still haven't decided what's better. A downtown apartment upstairs with windows to look out and see all the action - or, the basement apartment in which I have absolutely no idea what's going on outside the building.

    My perfect place is a western style wooden house with strong Japanese accents shoji panels, wood floors, covered decks. The modern kitchen (with inviting island) would be open to the living room, but the house is of a modest size overall. The house would be decorated with art, and there would be an abundance of books - ideally in a large library (with a baby grand piano!) - but alternatively in bookshelves distributed around the house, built into various nooks and crannies.

    The location, in Oregon, would be in a forest of evergreen trees mostly firs. The house would be nestled into the side of a hill, and sliding shoji panels would open to a slim deck that wraps around the house and provides a view of the valley below. The roof would extend over the deck to provide protection from the rain. (I love standing outside and listening to the rain!)

    It would be a quiet house for reading and thinking. (There would be music, too but in the background, on demand.) Adjacent to or in the library is a study area where the computer resides. (I cant live without my computer!)

    Its actually possible to have such a location in or near a large city in Oregon, so these specifications do not necessarily dictate a rural setting.

    OK. This was a bit much. But if youre writing a book, painting the image might be important.

    Sounds really cool. Definitely a place I'd want to visit. BTW, did you say "large city" and "Oregon" in the same sentence? Only thing that comes to mind is Portland. I just can't call Eugene or Salem large. BTW, when you mentioned having bookshelves being located in various locations throughout the house, I couldn't help but imagine having computers in various places throughout a house too. Like when you go to Barnes and Noble and they have the self-help kiosk computers located all through the store. That would be nice to have a computer in various spots throughout your library/house too.

    Well... I had in my mind Portland as I do know of places in the West Hills... but I didnt want to rule out Eugene (some folks think its big enough as a city).

    Im fine with my laptop and iPhone as my floating computers in the house... so the lone permanent workstation with spectacular Cinema display and multi-core horsepower should do perfectly well. But to each his own. Actually, I think the interior of the house should look simple and uncluttered. So Id prefer a library/study to collect the books and clutter in one place and leave the rest of the house calm and understated. But thats just me.

    Mine's not too unusual, but my perfect place in my imagination is a comfortable cottage on a lake in the woods. Surrounded by nature and water and quiet with one person who I cared very deeply for and who felt the same about me. We would let others visit, but they couldn't stay too long.

    I love the hustle and bustle of a city. I may not want to interact, but being in the middle of it makes me feel less isolated. I also love the culture in downtown areas - you just don't get that in suburbs or the country.

    I like a bohemian vibe, but not too laid-back - some activity around me is nice. I like very dreamy aesthetics, and a sense of nature in a city environment. I love buildings with plants growing up them, for example. The juxtaposition of man-made and natural appeals to me. I also like a lot of color and interesting architecture. Many places I can walk to are ideal. I love my car & the freedom it affords, but I miss my old apartment where I could walk or ride a bike to many places.

    I am very happy in a little apartment because I hate maintenance & prefer to keep things small/simple, but if I had a dream house, I'd like it by the ocean or with a pool because I like water, and I'd have some kind of conservatory with plants and peacocks walking around (I don't know why I always envision peacocks). I tend to kill plants though, so outside of my imagination someone else would have to be responsible for it . A huge personal library is a given - preferably two levels, or at least one high enough to require a rolling ladder. I like antique furniture too, authentic or just replica. If it's a bit "distressed" I love it even more.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Default Sorry, my grammatical skills have dropped. Lack of sleep.

    My perfect place would be something that reacts to how I feel at every turn.

    As if colours, awakened by my imagination, floating around and momentarily creating new things out of nothing but my mind.

    Creatures dwelling in all different kinds and shapes, in some places fight for survival and in others live in abundance.

    Physical notions felt in but a whim and my unconsciousness picks at the atmosphere at any given time.

    Actually, time wouldn't exist as we seem to find it.

    If I want to create something or conjulate a theory upon what is what, then it speaks, as if summoned, right out into the world.

    Where I can meet people that are truth and where I am truth.

    Everyone living in perfect symbios(is?).

    Where worlds are created in a gust of a thought and lived.

    Where death or life is no part of the world, simply just is.

    Where tangients and intangibles aren't the language the speak but what we understand and gain insight into.

    Where language is not needed anymore.

    Where you and I, live as we want to have lived our entire lives.

    Where complex ideas frollic in the sunshine.

    Where non-matter is as communicative as matter.

    I don't want to paint yours but I do want to paint mine.
    And if you want to paint mine, then please go ahead and do so.
    I will love you for it and I truly do.

    ____

    A "non" perfect place would be here on earth with a little bit of solitude, nature, warmth, little rain and perhaps a choice for when to act and not to act upon my own accord.
    Anywhere. - almost. Heh. Really chilly here in the north.
    Open for interpretation.
