“There’s no place like home,” says Dorothy - in The Wizard of Oz – and laredo 007 certainly verified this by taking place at my villa-esque home on the russet brick patio.


The site’s attraction came about quite unexpectedly by perceiving the dimensions of the floorplan, the patio, along with the brick pavers, had +/- the same ratio as the golden rectangle. I discovered a correlation like this had a term: apophenia, meaning “the human tendency to perceive meaningful patterns within random data.”* And so, I affirmed “peace + blessings” to the unknown yet astute architect of this 47-year-old scene in Oz where I happen to live.
