Red Chamber

This is one of many faraway views of the Valley area we can see from our deck upstairs. It is also the very same view from my optometrist’s window. He often tests his patients for distant visibility with this view from his practice.

I love the square tower of this grand old house – not tall enough to have Rapunzel hanging her hair down for the prince but still has that fairy tale feels about it. It also reminds me of the Chinese classic “Dream of the Red Chamber” – which I have to admit is too complicated for me to comprehend so I did not manage to read that many chapters (of the abridged translated version of course).
