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.

On this New Years Eve it is hard not to think about the year that has just passed and wonder about the one that will be here shortly. I have learned something during this past year and it isn't so extraordinary but it is important. Moving forward means letting go of disappointments, and distracti...
My stereo was enabled with speakers yesterday. The turntable wasn't working and I Googled the problem which I thought was the belt, and my guy fixed that too. I had an additional light put in a dark spot in the basement and some stuff moved around and the cords hidden. Between the electrician and...
I don't know how much television you watch or what you like but last night one of my absolute favorite programs on. Each year the Kennedy Center Awards Show was on and I loved it, and always do. The recipients were varied and amazing and the tributes terrific. The artistic community is wonderful ...

In my experience thought must provoke action which is simply the only way to get what you want or be where you want...
There are some thing that are wonderful to be welcomed to: a party, a new country, and a friends home: to name just a few. And then there are those things that remind you that something else is going on usually out of your control: court , jail or in my case recently the notice about Medicare. I ...
Well the hype is over and so is the holiday. The sales are on and the New Year is beckoning. There is light snow falling and a real feeling of contentment here this morning. I have a wash running and a baguette in the oven. Ready for a wonderful new day. I hope you enjoy yours.
This morning one of my three grabbed a sock and wanted me to see it. It was as if he was saying, "if I have no toys I will make due with what's around." So thinking he was right I gave each of the three a new sqeaky toy I had put aside for them. They were very happy initially and went their own w...
In this wonderful and absolutely festive season there is a great deal of noise. Some of that has to do with tasks and some is just about loss. No matter what is going on around you there is seldom time for reflection. Make the time, and know that there is inspiration in silence. Don't think so mu...
