I’m on the road today, freshly embarked on a week’s worth of wandering in Wisconsin, reviewing plays and visiting buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Right at this moment, I’m sitting in the Schwartz House in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, one of the three Wright houses available for short-term rental to the general public. To be exact, I’m sitting at the built-in desk in the nook shown in the top two photos, listening to Appalachian Spring on my iPod, clicking away at my iBook, and trying to persuade myself that I really do need to go to bed. It didn’t occur to me when I arranged to spend the night here that I might find it too exciting to get any sleep….
I’m writing about this trip for The Wall Street Journal, so I mustn’t give the whole show away for free, but I’ll share a little taste with you: contrary to anything you may have heard or read about Wright’s houses, this one is comfortable. Incredibly so. Who knew?
I think I’d better sign off now, since I have a very long day ahead of me. I’ll do my best to check in tomorrow night, but don’t be shocked if I drop off the scope for a day or two.
Yes, I’m having fun yet.
