Ideal Job I
An ideal job for me is as follows. I would love to buy up foreclosed, abandoned, and dilapidated properties, take them down, and make the plot into a green space. I have such an urge to better, beautify, and improve things. I also like to be a responsible manager of resources. This idea continues to come to mind repeatedly as it did once again Saturday. I was watching the movie "Green Fire" which was about Aldo Leopold. He bought up a large track of land in Wisconsin that had been irresponsibly used and, in time, turned it into a very natural, balanced location. That inspires me. I would like to do the very same thing. Except I would like to take a house or an urban setting and raze the place and make it into a natural setting. I would plant appropriate trees and shrubs and then walk away, letting it go natural. It is a weird dream but believe me when I say it is in my head often and it is within me with some real energy. How I could do this and profit, I have yet to figure that out. Maybe you can help. Leave comments below.
