A Place That Takes Your Hand

A Place That Takes Your Hand

Asheville Real Estate Journal

 

The retired firefighter was less than precise when telling me the features of the acreage he envisioned as we embarked on the first leg of the journey to find it.... . We were on the hunt for the signature farmland he described as..."nice, fresh air, and with a view" and " in the mountains not too far from Asheville NC." That he told me, and asked, " How will I  know it when I see it?"

 

So I shared a line from John Crowley’s book, Little Big . It speaks of bravery, a trait for which he is known. It paints ( in lyrical prose I have taken the liberty of typing as verse)  a cameo of the Homeplace one "feels" ...one, that, when you reach it, simply takes your hand ...
 

“…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....”

 

He smiled then. And turned to me, “YES!” he said. YES!!!  

And I thought…Possibly, just knowing that I understand that there is magic in this discovery that is fueled by something beyond the ordinary, was all he needed.

Lovely once again dear janeAnne. Can't type well - fell running with the dog (again) and have stiches and splint on right index finger.  Geez!

Hi janeAnne, Very well done. I couldn't quote that prose but hopefully each of us in our way could answer our clients that also might ask that question. However, be that the case or not, you certainly answered it brilliantly.
