What would I do with my own plot of land and the money to do whatever?
Build a secret garden.
It wouldn’t be very secret but just the thought of having a garden surrounded by walls with the door hidden under plants that have grown up and over the walls just for me seems blissful. The secret garden was one of my favourite books as a child and I always loved the idea of having a big garden just for myself with a pond, all kinds of flowers and places to just sit and read.
I also don’t care that its selfish. If I had the money I’d do it and not let anyone else in to ruin it. I wouldn’t want to share it unless I knew the person would love it as much as I did. You keep it open to the public and someone is bound to ruin it so just shut it in. Maybe have a little building in there with electricity to make food and line the walls with books.
So a genie appears and offers to grant my wish for the perfect space for reading and writing….
I’d guess it would have to look something like Belle’s library in the Beasts castle. Just one giant library. Books of all kinds lining every wall and the space being wide enough that it looks like a ballroom. It would have to be two or three tiered with a giant chandelier sparkling down on us. It would all be light, the metal would be brass and the floors would be pine.
OK not every wall lined with books I want a giant fireplace to sit in front of. Two big comfy sofas and a recliner armchair for when I get real lazy. I’d have the desk situated on the second floor on a balcony that comes out a little bit so that you can see the splendor all around. One of those big ornate jobbies that every writer in every movie has. A big high backed chair to sit in.
There would be doors leading out to a small garden space that overlooked some beautiful country scene, each floor would have its own balcony looking out towards the scene.
Something like that.
