Eric said that one of the things he looked at when getting his house was the quality of the stars in his backyard. That’s a good one. I’m incorporating that into my next house. Before, I always bought or rented a place first and discovered whether the sky was thrilling or dull later.
The next offer I make on a house will be a consequence of the quality of stars in the backyard.
Another contingency of mine is that the ratio of natural sounds to man-made sounds will have to be high. I don’t want quiet, I just want more crickets and hoot-owls and fewer clankings and spinning tires. The hoot-owls can hoot all night long at the crickets if they’d like.
Quality stars and nature, or the deal’s off.
