“I designed the house myself. I would make of it a playhouse, a spot for rest, recreation, good living, romping, roistering, and cultured living too…
The interior of the house wasn’t ornate, but it was beautiful and practical and there was plenty of room…
I think I liked my den best of all. Here was my desk next to a window where the California light streamed in. There I sat often on the weekends, when I barred the doors and I wrote or tried to write. Nearby was a fireplace and wood was on the hearth; and when it was cool the logs burned and the room was aglow.”
And I read it in my teens. Of course.
I like the combination of the icon combined with architecture/living style
