Simple Ghosts

This house is very intriguing. When I think of people who may have lived in this house, I envision simple people. A man and a woman, with possibly a small child or two. And it gives me a warm feeling. This house appears to be located in a rural area with not much going on. I like to see that because in this day and age we are all living in a world full of technology and competition. The family living in this home would not need any of that, they would only need each other and they would be happy. They would farm and grow their own food and teach their children at home. This home would be very enlightened, but the ghosts wouldn’t ooze from the walls. They would tend to each other and their chores. And smile.
