time to tell the truth

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes & Gardens Wine Country Group DRE # 00770113


I so often have just posted here my real estate BS for way tooo long. It is time for me to voice this.

Firstly, if I never hear the word COVID again, I will die in peace, with a smile.

I sip way too much tequila and have once more imbibed. But there is a meeting of my soul, once again in saying hello to my mind.

In this brilliance, often a blur, this fragile moment I perchance awaken, partake and then fall back to oblivion. I know not just a life, but an existence.

There are few times when my soul is so bear, my mind so free. Who am I to allow less, who are you to allow more.

Then, and only then will there be a true balance between you and me. Then and only then will there be me, to step alone, to step aloud, hearing, caring and listening. Good night sweet person, good night to me.

CVC no need to panic do not listen to all the bad news most politicians do not care about you and my take is it is a bit over blown... I like the idea of going back fifty years in Los Angeles traffic and talking to my neighbors who are now staying home as I walk our dog... before I used to curse as the cars would go 60 miles per hour in a 25 mile zone to take a shortcut to LAX now I enjoy that there are no Uebers or Lyffts and I can safely walk with my dog... I am a wino:) you should be too since you live in wine country:))Endre

Hello Curtis - as you know this too shall pass but it will likely take some time.  Stay safe and healthy.  Be patient(and that's coming from one who wrestles with patience often).

These current times can certainly play games with our head.  Isolation isn't always an easy thing!  One thing for certain though.  It seems to have made a poet of you!  Stay well, my friend!

Hi Curtis! You and my hubby and the tequila - he calls it his sinful indulgence and it makes him feel better when times are tough! Lord knows, he's had one heck of a year and like you, we hope and pray never to hear that word again!

Stay strong and know that we are all 'in limbo' and are all looking SO forward to coming out of the other side SOON. 

I have friends who are really struggling with being shut-in and several have tried meditation apps. I think the best one is Headspace but, it does cost $70/month. Smiling Mind is the best free app that I've heard of. 

And, hey, if you want to chat with a Southern gal, give me a ring! Would love to hear your voice. (704) 491-3310.
