Asheville Land Specialist Romancing the Possibilities

 

Looking for Land in All the Right Places- That is romancing pure possibility. And that is what  this land specialist entertains each time I go out in the mountains and valleys surrounding Asheville, NC. Finding the "right" acreage takes time--as does finding the "right" life's partner.

I'm thinking of the case of one of my favorite land-buying clients who had some difficulty in doing that. 

Yes…he envisioned a small farm and a green-built home and a state-of-the-art barn to match…but with enough level land for his gardens. (Guess what? It is not easy to find in the mountains around Asheville.)   We were both scratching our heads when it occurred to me to share one of my favorite passages from John Crowley’s book, Little Big.

" These few lines have always seemed to shed some light on how 'romancing the land' to find the 'right' place," I explained-- and quoted Crowley:

“…on brave luminous mornings
walking expectant and watchful,
waiting to be led and feeling
(at once, at the same moment)

the turning [you] must take
that would lead
to a place  
that  took your hand and said, 'We’re here….' "

 “YES!” my client said. “YES!!!  And I thought…Yes! We are romanicng the possibilities. Just understanding this gave us the perspectives we needed on this journey to a forever home. Could this be the "right" place for you?
