If you could live anywhere, where would it be? For me, I'd like to live on several acres of land, somewhere that isn't too far from a city (I do like having access to medical facilities and good stores), but far enough out of the limits so that if I wanted to (or could) I'd have a couple of goats and some chickens.
My brother L, lives in an apartment now. I know he and his wife would like to live in a house, so they'd be looking at. Though, I'm pretty sure that they'd like to live in a house well within the city. They'd probably end up living in Austin again. They are most assuredly city folk.
The Texas Hill country is just about the most breath taking, difficult, challenging and enchanting area you could imagine. The countryside inspires people to do their best, or it can defeat them. It's not for the faint of heart, instead, it is for the Great of Heart. Those people who create homes from the wilderness, but care enough for it to leave it wild.
