my charmed life


Some people have it good. Just as they are exiled from their homes while writing a story about the Seminoles at the turn of the 20th century, they are offered the once-in-a-lifetime chance to inhabit a jewel box, a little artist's cottage filled with gems and trinkets from decades of collection. Or maybe assemblage is the right word.
   It is so quiet here on the West Side of Block Island, a different world from the beach, where I usually live. Perfect place to write. Private. Write, hell, maybe I'll take off all my clothes and scamper around in the sunshine! This idyll is available for much of the summer to people who appreciate a tiny, fragile collage of a cottage and are willing to treat it reverently, as it deserves. Check it out here at Offshore Property. Tell them Claudia sent you.

My dream home!

I think it's only about 20 x 30, two floors, but has five tiny bedrooms! The owner has been sued by a guy who claimed he was too tall to rent the place and wanted his money back. Meanwhile, her sons are 6' 4" or something and have stayed here all their lives.
