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 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.

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.
Today was the first time I took my dogs to be groomed since my Billy died. It was and is really hard. I knew the others were more anxious than usual and when the groomer saw me I cried. I came home and watered the flowers particularly those around Billy's grave. I spoke to him but frankly it didn...
Since moving to the Berkshires, in western Massachusetts, some eight years ago I have volunteered or worked at Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops and any number of world re-known musicians, singers, and groups. I have also had opportunities to greet or s...
I have literally thousands of day lilies all over my yard and in front of my house. Many of these were here when I came but I have separated them and continue to plant them. Now I have learned to buy re-blooming or ever blooming ones because the time it takes to cut them back and remove the wood ...
