We finally decided to turn the page of life so we can maybe read a few more chapters in comfort—and even find out how it ends. So … we have our home on the market and are “moving to town”—to Reno, NV—to be closer to the things dictated by advancing age and infirmaries.
We dreamed, designed, and planned our log home for ten years before retiring in 2000—and then actually built it on 16 acres of beautiful High Sierra forest in Lassen County, California. The past 15 years have met all expectations for what we wanted to accomplish. Now it’s time to pass it on to a younger dreamer who can nurture it for another couple of decades. If you ever dreamed of mountains, log homes and peace--the place is for sale: Here's a tour (you may have to paste it to your search site)
Packing, garage sales, piles of donations to good-will, distribution of treasures to family and friends, all provide a wild ride of transitions … our crazy world!
My novel writing, audio book production, and our new publishing venture will continue when we finally settle into a “permanent” existence again. There will be a time of “limbo” for some months before one end closes and the other opens. But we spent our life together as “corporate nomads” so move, changes, new friends, keeping old friends close, are very familiar endeavors.
The beauty of the internet (among all its warts) is this ability to maintain one’s identity and close contacts wherever the physical world may be. So keep in touch—we’re “here” until the last chapter goes to press.
