Sunny House

This house in Chestnut Hill seems almost to contain sunshine.  It's cheery countenance is for me a smile.  That may be because it is very similar to a house I lived in when I was growing up in the country.  My mother looked for years for a house with windows down to the floor and finally found one in Worcester, Pennsylvania.  It looked a lot like this but was in the middle of several acres that were for me a little paradise, a refuge from the sturm und drang of adolescence.
