“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints” ~Wilfred Peterson

Just had to return here. It was such a lovely place to visit, a grand place to stroll. The Biltmore House, Ashville, NC. It was built by George Washington Vanderbilt. Richard Morris Hunt designed it. And Frederick Law Olmsted designed the gardens and landscape.
One can only imagine the revelry, gaiety, sorrow, unhappiness and joy that has visited this "house." Because it is a reality check for me when I visit places like this. Understanding that material wealth is not the answer allows me to focus on who I am, where I live and gratitude. And I'm blooming where I am planted.
Thanks be to God!
