Just thinking, I wonder who would be the happier occupant?  And why?

I think the train may have forced the previous tenants out in the first picture.

Hey, Gary. Cute post. The castle has bigger closets, with more room for shoes.

Gary.. It is all in the eye of the beholder and occupant.  You can have next to nothing as far as a home, and a very fulfilled life.  On the other hand you can have a castle and only be able to afford corn flakes for breakfast.  So who is the one that truly has the wealth?

Nice photos. I think I would choose the quiet solitude that would come from the little cabin in the woods.

Gary - When I saw these 2 photos, just this thought came to mind. Whether we live in a shack or a castle, it's all in the state of mind. However, location is KEY. I think you just sparked a candid post for tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration.

Gary,

The castle picture is beautiful...do you know where that location is?

I think the train would blow the little shack right off it's base...hmmm.

Gary:  These must be computer generated images.  Very cool.   Can't imagine cleaning that castle.  By the time you finished, it'd be time to start all over again.

It is all in how you think - some live in castles and are so poor in meaningful things, and others who don't have very much materially, are rich beyond all imagination.

Seems that both the tracks and shack are abandoned.  There's a lot of people in castles that are equally gone.  I prefer the happy medium.

Gary, give me the place in the first picture!  Although right on the tracks, it is still worth more in my eyes than the sterile environment of the castle!

I love that first picture by the tracks; being rich in perspective and happiness in ones heart can find beauty in lots of different light. Any history with that first picture?

I'll go with the first one...less upkeep, easier payments.

Like they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For most, the hardest part is not judging what another is contentg with in life.
