Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy. It is my view that if we are positive, then positive things will happen. There are great opportunities in the market and it is time to stress the positive, and put a bow on it.

I am leaving the antique gallery where I have a space at the end of next month. Long story short the building was sold and while the owner is giving my boss several more months, she is leaving shortly and didn't tell anyone. It is a big job to liquidate the thousands of items I have but yesterday...
About forty years ago I read a wonderful book by Studs Terkel called Working. I don't know why I chose it but it has stayed with me always and last night I saw a revival of a play based on this book. The original play was done in 1977. The revival I saw, in my neighborhood no less, included music...
I have finally figured out that the only way I am going to be able to clear out my space at the antique gallery where I have worked for the last two years, is to do it myself. I haven't been able to get another dealer to buy me out and there isn't enough traffic for me to sell the rest of the stu...
I wear progressive lenses and I broke my eye glasses last night. I believe my prescription is still fine but I have an appointment in early September. About a month ago I stopped into my place for an adjustment to my existing glasses which they no longer sell and can not service. A replacement ev...
I am grappling with how to move the inventory I have left at the space I have in the local antique gallery. The gallery is moving and I am not going. Organization is required and that is tough. I have to weigh how long I can hang in and try and liquidate my inventory, and then make arrangements t...
And in the northeast it is still hot and humid but I have things I must do today and I will tackle them. Although I am not sure how much I will get done, I am about to get going. I am learning again that life is about doing the very best we can with the tools we have. My tool aren't as sharp as t...
It is really hot and humid here in the Berkshires. I don't cope well with this kind of weather. I am working in the antique gallery where I have a space. It has been really slow and I am about done in. I have three hours to go and if it were my shop, I would close and go home and take a cold show...
It is still hot and humid in my neck of the woods and I am working at the antique gallery where I have a booth. It isn't air-conditioned, there is no bathroom, and I will be leaving next month. The owner has not been forthcoming about her plans and I continued to acquire things to sell because sh...
There will be wonderful days in my future but not today. There will be lovely people who help me in ways big and small but not today. There will be cool and productive days in my garden, but not today. There will be days when I sell a lot of old treasures I have collected to people who value them...
I guess I will be spending as much time as possible home this weekend. The weather in my neck of the woods will be hot and very humid and I don't function in this heat. I have to work on Sunday but until then I will mostly be in and and relaxing in front of a television. Enjoy your day.
