A true retreat!


In Russian literature there is this character Ilya Ilyich Oblomov whose one distinguishing characteristic is his slothful attitude towards life which he raises to an art form by conducting his little daily business from his bed. In fact, in the first 50 pages of the novel he manages only to move from his bed to a chair.

He must've lived in a place like "Riverbend" because there are many days when I move no farther from my bed than the verandah over-looking the river or the "clubhouse" by the pond. Why, even the dog seems to have gone into a Zen-like state! ☺

The original sales blurb called "Riverbend"


I'm finally catching on to what they meant by it because it is truly a retreat from the world.



And today is no exception: the peaceful river, the warming sun, and a glass of slightly chilled wine make it another perfect day.

You have to live somewhere; it might as well be Paradise!
