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.

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 ...

For the last couple of years I have had a space in a local antique gallery near my home where I worked on Sunday's. I learned this week that the owner is moving in less than six weeks and didn't bother to tell anyone. Needless to say I am bummed and more, but right now my focus is one liquidating...
I have a space in a local antique gallery near my home. I have been there about two years and work there on Sundays to offset the cost of my booth. I learned this week that the owner is moving out at the end of next month. Sadly she hasn't told the vendors save one. I am beyond angry. People are ...
My parents are both gone a very long time. Nonetheless today would have been their anniversary and when I see the date I can't help but remember them both and be grateful for who they made me. Dates mean more to me today than they once did and aging is something I have learned is not a given for ...
Today is one of those not much going on days. I seem to be at a crossroads with a number of decisions to make that are very significant. I have been thinking about these things for some time and will soon have to act on them. Life is a stretch and just when you think you have it down.....things c...
