The house is still for sale because it still makes sense to sell it and buy/build something we can afford. But what makes sense one minute can turn into total silliness the next. We're keeping all options open, and we're not doing anything out of desperation. We're not desperate. And if the Universe wants us to keep this house, which really is quite lovely, It will also provide us with the resources to do it.
I'm spending some time this week and next pondering options and opening myself to things I've not yet thought of. My Big Question to God is, What now???, and I'm hoping for an answer soon. And if it all turns around again, and we get the call to go somewhere else, well, that's still a possibility. But if we have anything to say about it--and I'm not at all sure we do--we'll take Taos. I feel like Dorothy, waking up, still a little woozy, in my own bed, in my own room, after a long and amazing adventure. Dorothy was right. There's no place like home.
