Do you ever sit and daydream about what you'd do if money were no object, if you didn't have family obligations, if you were brave? I've hear that called 'creative moodling,' and I did a bit last evening. Granted, I pretty much live my dream life here in France. But if money were no object, I'd buy this house in my village, convert the separate apartment on the bottom into an art gallery/atelier and sell fine art. Of course, the house itself could use a bit of an update, and to suit my tastes, it would have to be open, airy and filled with sunlight, soft comfy furniture and loads of paintings hanging on the walls. Oh yes, in a perfect world, it would also need a chef's stove and oven (gas, by all means!) I figure it would take about 500,000 euros to accomplish all this. Anyone know someone who wants to 'gift' me???
