Dwelling on The American Dream

It’s refreshing to see the concept of home-ownership as The American Dream continue to get debunked – especially by respected, hip publications like Dwell.

The American Dream, some say, is all about owning a home. Here’s how you can live the dream without the picket fence or the mortgage.

From An Introduction to Renting:

I rent. There, I said it. As more and more friends sign the closing papers and put down roots, I remain transient, a dandelion seed drifting over their landscaped lawns. Sometimes this makes me feel like a failure at adult­hood. Other times I look around and breathe a sigh of renter’s relief. I can pick up and go anytime, without worrying about market value. Plus, it’s nice to have someone else deal with leaks, pests, and jiggly doorknobs. Liberty, mobility, and someone to complain to: This is the American Dream.

Well said.
