Last week, I came across a new possibility. When I see something I like and it's in my cash-only price range, I get there to check it out in person, as soon as I can. This allows me to really "see" it - especially when it's raining: filling the land with water or not. Plus, I can bring the memories of what I immediately liked and disliked up and weigh them to actualities.
Labam is east of Raymond. It's a tiny community of 160 people (2010 census - though I think 2 people moved away). There was an elementary school, but it is for sale (they sell schools?). When stream surveying for the state, we drive past it every other week and yes, if you blink, you will miss it.
It's still pretty far from my friends in Westport. But I am wondering - can't I make new friends? I rarely see people as my life is so different than most of my good acquaintance's. And, to be honest, I really just want solitude. I'm tired of entertaining. I'd like to just wake up and 'be.'
Don't Do. Be.
So, I am seriously thinking about just going forward with buying it. I think I would be happy out there.
