Talk about a reset button.
If you’ve seen Doc Hollywood, you’ve got the general idea.
Since 2003 I’ve worked as a freelance marketing director via The Brand Development Company. There’s a logo/button for more info on that down below. You have no idea how grand it is to be out of the rat race and out here instead.
Pineapple Hill is a residence and business retreat: a Bermuda cottage-style beach house built up off the ground in a cow pasture.
It’s a great place to brainstorm.
There’s even a conference room. (It doubles as a party room for oyster roasts.)
There’s a “test” vineyard, palm trees, bamboo, peach trees, apple trees, blackberries, blueberries, black mission figs and persimmons. There’s a Palmer-proven “par one” golf course and a deck for 12-guage shots at sporting clays. There’s a dog and a cat, deer and a few coyotes, fishing poles and, a little ways through the woods, the 35-acre fishing hole.
There’s a red canoe, surfboards, a wooden skiff with lovely sheer, a hot tub (blue swim trunks stuck in a nearby banana tree), lots of books, homemade wine and a bonfire pit.
We named the turkeys, collectively, “The Wilsons”.
As in “Look ya’all! The Wilsons are back!”
When not working “on the clock”, I like to sail, drive an old Jeep, repair an old Jaguar, paint stuff on recycled pallets.
I’ve written a novel set on Edisto Island and another about a blue rubber pool. I’m working on a next (set in Charleston). Maybe I’ll get them published someday. Or maybe not.
It’ s a pretty good life. Far different than what I knew in New York, the Chicago area, West Virginia, Jacksonville, Tampa, DC, and other places I’ve lived. Way far different. Which is why I keep this web site …to remind me that this quirky dream is real.
Thanks for stopping by. Let’s meet up on Twitter too.
