Beatrix Potter home/Lake District. As a child, I didn't care for Ms. Potter's stories, which were more depressing than entertaining. However, I do admire Ms. Potter's artistry and success, her strength of character in the face of societal constraints, and her efforts to preserve the Lake District. She was before her time; I would like to believe that we would have been friends if we had met.
