Surrounded by redwood trees, this cabin in Cazadero, California, takes full advantages of the secluded location. Visitors can enjoy an outdoor dry heat sauna, patio, hammocks, and a BBQ. Inside, you'll find mid-century modern accents mixed with rustic charm. What do you think? ⠀

Spent a beautiful weekend with family on LBI. If only Sundays were as long as Mondays. ✨
Henry C. Ulen was born in Boone County, Indiana where his father was a storekeeper in the county seat of Lebanon. Young Henry had more interest in skipping than he did in attending school and eventually dropped out. He married Mary Dutch and within four years, as a high school dropout, he passed the bar exam and began practicing law. He established the American Light & Water Company in Indianapolis to install municipal utilities. Eventually, Ulen organized Ulen & Co. and Ulen Contracting Co. in New York City and secured contracts for projects such as building the Shandaken Tunnel through the Catskill Mountains. In 1922, Ulen agreed to help build a country club back home in Lebanon, Indiana where he was a member of the Ulen Country Club's first board of directors. Business grew globally and Henry was overseeing projects in Poland and in the Persian Gulf. By this time, Henry decided to move his successful company to tiny Lebanon, Indiana from New York City - a tough sell for his NYC executives. The beautiful Ulen Country Club was not enough of an incentive for the executives, so Ulen built them a town of high-end homes - Ulen, Indiana was incorporated in 1929. His business ended in the 1950's and Henry Ulen passed away in 1963. He is buried in Lebanon, Indiana next to his wife of more than 60 years. The home he built for himself is pictured and backs up to the golf course and is a short distance from the clubhouse he built.

- I fell in love with this United States Post Office when I was last in Miami Beach in August of 2014. I returned to see it again today. Swipe left to see more pictures. The architect was Howard Lovewell Cheney, and it was built in 1937 in the Art Moderne style. Howard Cheney was the same architect who designed Peoria’s federal building, which I recently posted. There’s a cool mural on the inside. I think it’s of the Miami Indian tribe welcoming the Spanish. With tomahawks. Spanish people are bad at navigating, so they crashed their ships into Florida. And it has been a hot mess express ever since. #miamibeach #thepostalproject #uspostalservice #artmoderne #miamibeacharchitecture #howardlovewellcheney #thisplacematters #historicpreservation #regrann

Boasting a mix of contemporary and rustic asthetics, this farmhouse in Wimberley, Texas, sits on 17 acres of land. Visitors can marvel in views of the surrounding hills, as well as a 250-year-old oak tree on the property. Wouldn't you like to spend the day relaxing on the large front porch?

Sunday Funday! What a gorgeous setting! 😍 @Regrann
- While flipping though channels this evening, someone will pause on The Matrix (1999) for a few minutes.
You came of age in the late 90s, so this movie is supposed to mean something to you: you were supposed to be inspired by its anticapitalist rhetoric, and if that did nothing for you, at least you had the CGI. However, what The Matrix means to you is this: it reminds you of someone you broke up with before you let it get too serious. All of his references were Matrix-focused. He batted around an attempt at a too-symbolic nickname. He was too tall and too skinny, wore Nehru collared shirts...but he didn’t have one, he had like 10 of them, as if hoping that the collar was a shorthand, no, a signal. It said: I’m cool. come back to my room and I have Dark City on tape and my roommate is never home.
And now, it comes back: the memory of when you realized you needed to break up: once you randomly had déja vu in the line in the dining hall and he gravely told you that there must be a glitch in the matrix. He wasn’t kidding. He sprinkled some furikake from a baggie he carries on to his rice, and then went to sit down at a table with his friends, where they talk about a supervirus that spread by chemtrails that mutates the human genome. He saves you a seat right next to him.
Later, you learned that he was a Japanese professor at a small liberal arts college outside of Los Angeles. You can see him there: he’s wearing wire rimmed 90s sunglasses and an unseasonably long black coat that makes him look like a techy seminarian.
But you see him smiling, and you reflexively smile too. You have always been satisfied by a solid consistency of character.
