I’ve been amazed by the tipis (or teepees) I’ve seen lately. Ralph Lauren has some on his property that are like the Taj Mahal of tipis.

What is so alluring about them?

Is it the triangular shape pointing to heaven? The circular walls? The cocoon effect?

I can’t say. But I am drawn to their simplicity and coziness. Maybe there is something tribal about them that reminds us of our distant past – a time before bricks and mortar.

Whatever it is, I know that someday there will be a tipi perched outside by the pond in North Carolina or on the mound in Virginia. And maybe then I can tell you what it is that seems so appealing to me.
