LOL, LK - who could forget annie's pink hair?!?! (especially with the orange sweatshirt - UGH!) :D

well, i happen to think that the way you handle jacob is marvelous. and he's a doll. he never seemed intimidated by a bunch of laughing (and fairly drunk at times) adults. i just wish you could have stayed longer, but i guess we were lucky to get at all, right?!

I keep thinking about this story, and the concept of "the structure that's larger and more convoluted on the inside than the outside." It's archetypal, I think--one of those things that I dream about from time to time. It's usually a return to my childhood home, only to find it full of winding secret passages and huge, interesting rooms (sometimes filled with arcade machines, sometimes carnival rides, maybe a huge pool room etc). My Jungian chops are rusty but probably has something to do with hidden facets of the self.
Definitely one of my favorites in the book.

Me too! "Volutary Committal" and "Pop Art" are my 2 favs in 20thCG.

Your post reminded me of that book "House of Leaves". Did you ever read it? It's about a house that is much larger inside than out...but in a much creepier way than the lovely dream you describe.

Did you watch American Pickers last night? That maze Ron made was wild. The room it led to was awesome.

No...but I'd love to. Maybe they'll repeat it. I've only seen the commercials but it looks really interesting. What a great job, eh?
After you wrote that about AP I got to thinking maybe they'd find Morris on an episode of "Hoarders". :lol:
