Heavenly Abodes – A Modest and Lovely Lifestyle

Evocative, serene, hobbit house images, with James Taylor video.

I seem to have an inherent longing for the lifestylings these homes illustrate. Is it the simplicity? The artfulness? The individuality of home-artisans? Can’t quite put my finger on it yet.

It’s like looking at pictures of mountains streams, starry night skies. Some sort of gentle pull, tweaking and rummaging around in the gut like rustlings of autumn leaves between the fingers. Something brisk, promising, fresh, cool, crisp, clear.…05117.

James Taylor – Up On the Roof


When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin’ tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go up on the roof (up on the roof)

At night the stars put on a show for free
And, darling, you can share it all with me

I keep a-tellin’ you

Right smack dab in the middle of town
I’ve found a paradise that’s trouble proof (up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There’s room enough for two
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)


Everything is all right (up on the roof)
