Picturing a World

Man in the Moon tree house

In looking for images of medieval taverns this morning, I stumbled across this 18thC painting. It has nothing to do with my new story, but it instantly reminded me of the Swiss Family Robinson tree house restaurant in Where the Light Falls. Oh, yea! And doesn’t it just cry out for its own story?

The learned discussion on-line that I found indicates that if there is an inn, it’s the building on the far left (that would fit in with the practice at Plessis). Furthermore, the artist probably devised it from imagination. All the more reason to let our own imaginations soar! If you think of a plot, let me know. If I think of a story, I’ll write it.
