home dreams

I know things have been slow around here but backstage, away from this blog, there’s a lot going on these days. I’m almost ready to share, yet still too superstitious to risk it until all the dotted lines have been signed. Hang in there with me.

I feel as vulnerable as the baby bird one of my oldest friends found on the ground this weekend and placed back in its nest. Or the newborn chickadee another dear friend shakily returned to its home the week before. The possibility of misstep, the distance to fall, is daunting. But I too am being carried safely homeward, cradled in a giant, tender, clumsy hand made up of brokers, bankers, inspectors, family, and wise friends.

Soon I’ll tell you about it.

    Those huge rocks seem so overwhelming and you look so small there. Why do they hold firm?? Yet they do.

    People buy and sell homes all the time. It is amazing that it works out: this dance of lawyers, realtors, bankers, home repair people, advisors…It all seems so rote to them, yet the first time I did this IT WAS SO HUGE!!!!
    In the end I just had to trust that all of it would just work itself out, and I would live through it and that I wasn’t insane. I can’t wait to hear the news.. until then we are closer by than you realize, give a call when you need some TLC.

    It sounds scary and exciting. I can’t wait to hear the details. Scott and I are moving, too, so I can empathize with your caution. I am thinking of you.
