  Taking The Fifth Dimension   Taking The Fifth Dimension   Mixing things up.  So to speak.  Taking the fifth.   The Fifth Dimension.  The mind wanders.  And yes it certainly meanders.   I have no evidence that any members of the award-winning quintet The Fifth Dimension ever chose to invoke the fifth amendment.  I mean even mentioning it could be subject to cries of "fake news" and the like.  I prefer not to be aligned with anything like that.  That's one less bell I need to answer.   A pondering can lead down a rather circuitous path - meandering as I have said in the past.  Wandering and wondering too.  Sometimes it is one where music can be heard.  Or just a thought.  An occurence.  Something from a long time ago.  To become immersed.  To get lost.  At least temporarily.   The Twili...

  Releasing Your  Two-Year Old Self    Releasing Your Two-Year Old Self   I am not a parent but I have been a two-year old:  a long time ago mind you so I can kinda relate.  And I know people.  People who either currently have or who have had two-year olds in their life.  So in some way I could be like Jane Goodall observing the subjects in their own environment.  Yeah, kinda.  Two-Year Olds In Our Midst.   I ponder and then I digress.  Casual observations show that the subjects seem to have mastered some rather basic skills that I believe could come in quite handy in everyday life.   That's the power of "No".  It can be spoken quietly.  Loudly too.  It can be used repeatedly.   You know like No.  NO.  NO!  And it seems to be quite powerful.  It can build confidence if that is needed   ...

Home in Lower Rancho Neighborhood in Arcadia Just Leased 832 Monte Verde Drive in the city of Arcadia A few weeks ago I received a call from an agent no longer in the business asking if I could assist a former client relocating back to our area.  This person was looking for a lease and while that’s not a part of the business I pursue, I am happy to help when I can.  Leasing in our area is quite competitive.   While I represent landlords who I assisted as buyers when they acquired their property, I don’t make working with prospective tenants in their search an active part of my real estate practice.    There is limited inventory.  Often difficulty in showing properties. Frankly there are other issues too.  Simply, I find it’s not always the best use of my time.  But because I ask lots of...

Looking to the Form school of Feng Shui, the observation in regard to how fast or slow a body of water was moving, in what direction and even how it eroded the land; all played a factor in locating a good place for homes to be built upon.  In modern-day times, you could say the same concept still exists, only with a more urban and suburban perspective. Bodies of water are now translated into the design of sidewalks, streets, driveways, and private pathways leading to your front door. Including a curved pathway and even driveway design that gently approaches your front door is more desirable than a straight pathway. The energy flow (represented by water and in modern designed pathways) has a chance to be more controlled with its movement vs rushing straight into your home. It's a Feng Sh...
