    Runnin Down a Dream

    “It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down, I had the radio on, I was drivin’.”-Tom Petty Well… we did it. We ran down our dream: the road-trip-summer-vacation that we’ve talked about for decades and had been planning for months.  When I pictured us driving “into the great wide open,” I usually visualized a flat stretch of road that…

    Breakdown

    Forget about real estate for a sec.We’ve been Safer At Home for a while now and the bigger message of this month’s Tom-Petty-Themed Update is: It’s alright. Tom says:“It’s alright if you love me It’s alright if you don’t” I would add:It’s alright if you learned a new language while you worked from home.It’s alright if you watched all of the…

    A Bunch of Other People

    Some of you need to stop. Just because you think it, doesn’t mean you have to say it.This ALWAYS applies, but nor, more than ever.Stop and think and walk away and come back.Step outside yourself and your world view. Try on another man’s shoes. You don’t even have to walk anywhere, just try them on. A bunch of people are missing…

    It’s Good To Be King

    It’s Good To Be King If it applies to you, that title holds a lot of truth but, in keeping with our theme of Tom Petty hits, let’s explore this slightly sarcastic number.  “It’s good to be king and have your own way Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day” The reality is, it’s good to…

    The Juggle Is Real – Coronavirus

    Right now is a lot. It just is. Eventually, it’ll be less, but we gotta get by until then. Every member of the family is impacted and we’re all finding our way through it; some of us, with the grace of a ballerina and some of us with the grace of a baby giraffe in a tutu, but we’re getting…

    The Waiting

    There’s a lot to unpack this time around. Let’s begin. First of all, there are really no lyrics, from this song, that I could contort into a real estate reference. I mean, I could -“Every day you get one more yard” – but it would be a ridiculous stretch. I’ll let it remain the peppy little love song it is.…

    Wildflowers

    Wildflowers, as a song, isn’t the rockin’ good time we best know Tom Petty for, but that difference is what makes it special. A simple melody that almost reaches a Dylan-esque feel, as it works its way through a very “Peace & Love” vibe. Truly, this song was made for February, a month that is such a dramatic blend of…

    Into the Great Wide Open

    As if I could kick off this year’s blog series with any other title. Last Fall, trying to pick a theme for this year’s blog, I ended up doing some crowd-sourcing. My friend, Sean Carpenter, suggested Tom Petty songs. As Realtors, who -presumably- write blogs about real estate, this makes perfect sense.  Or not. Direct relevance aside, I loved the…

    Prayer on a Plate

    It’s finally here. The last blog post of 2019. In keeping with the Food-Holiday Theme, I’ve got the arguable best saved for last.  Ladies and Gentlemen: It is my distinct pleasure to announce to the unaware, that Saturday, the 14th of December, is National Biscuits and Gravy Day! More words seem really unnecessary, in the wake of such an announcement,…

    Something For Everyone

    Q: A vegan, a crossfitter and an atheist walk into a bar; how can you tell which is which? A: Don’t worry, they’ll tell you. It’s really interesting, how many different types of people we have on our tiny planet. In some instances, you may never know of the interests or inclinations of your neighbor. In other cases, people feel…
