Meg, you never cease to amaze me, you seem like an awesome lady. Your description made me think to myself 'why does something so simple, and what used to be the norm, seem so out of reach nowadays?"

or a small apartment in Rome, overlooking the Vatican...
or a loft apartment in a major city, near the theater and entertainment district...
