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 love to travel. I have been away for a few days within the state and out of touch. I really enjoyed myself but it is good to be home. I don't have a Butler like the one I met at The Crane Estate, but I do have my pups back and a television. It's good being in the real world again.
I work at Naumkeag, a museum/mansion and gardens in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts where I now live. I have a part time seasonal job in the Welcome Center there where I greet visitors, schedule tours, sort of run the gift shop and food concession and sell memberships to the parent organi...
I spent the entire day learning, relaxing and exploring. OK, I did enjoy a few special meals too, but that was part of the relaxing. The Crane Estate is mind boggling. Located off the north shore of Massachusetts, this fabulous property is known as the jewel of the Trustees of Reservations the or...
So after a lovely drive throughout Massachusetts, lunch made it all worthwhile. When I was eating the steamers I had not a care in the world and was happy to be in a wonderful joint. Later we arrived at the Inn and the folks were gracious and the suite here is lovely. No televion or phones but th...
I am off soon to Crane Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts, and the Crane Estate, the jewel of the Trustees of Reservations, I work for the Trustees in my end of the state. I write often about Naumkeag, the former Choate home where I work a few days a week. It will be neat to see the other place I he...
Some days I awake thinking about the joys of the upcoming day. Other days I think about coffee or breakfast or meeting a friend. Mostly though I think about and crave kindness. It is a simple thing really and yet it matters more than anything. You can't always get what you want but today, today I...
When it is sunny I typically feel pretty good, but not always. When I know the temperature out is really hot and humid, I hope it rains. I love watching the rain or better yet the snow from inside when the the house is cozy and my pups are around. I find my mood is differently impacted by what th...
I generally don't work on Mondays: I do errands, clean and get caught up for the week. Today I am working because I will be off for three days. It's strange working with a different crew. I work at Naumkeag, a museum/mansion and gardens close to my house. Every group is different and there are a...
I'm working at Naumkeag today and tomorrow and then I will be heading to the Crane Estate and Crane Beach on the east coast. Naumkeag is a beautiful and unpretentious Mansion/Museum and gardens in the western part of Massachusetts, and Crane is bigger and more formal. From the pictures it looks l...
Thursday nights at Naumkeag, a mansion/museum and gardens where I work a couple of days a week, there is music up on top and food and drinks where people watch the sun set. It's a great opportunity for me to sell memberships and a chance to spend more time with our vistors than I generally get du...
