Ask Baba Yaga: How Can I Be At Peace?

Baba Eyesore

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,
Somebody has built a big house atop a nearby mesa, prominent in my home’s landscape. How can I be at peace with this man-made monstrosity looming over the valley?

BABA YAGA:

Rare it is that a place ; is sacred-most to all, & always there are those bumbling & unmoved ones who invade & invade & trouble yr life & understand nothing. ) But they are walking after some song of their own, following it because the song is sweet to them, & whether you burn this house down or ignore it forgivingly, know this.
