Hello, folks. It's been rather a while since I was in touch here. Let's catch up.
My health had another one of those long downward spirals last year. There were occasional ups, but more downs. But circumstances intervened in a good way: I needed to move. From the vantage point of my new apartment, I can see just how bad the old one had gotten. Some of the big problems turn out to have basically been mine, with needed chores neglected. Others turn out to be the place itself degrading for want of needed maintenance and upgrading.
Now the latter are far away from me - well, across town, since I've moved from Ballard to Redmond. The new place is very much an upgrade for me. In fact it would normally be flat-out beyond my means, but there's a regulation that new housing construction in this area set aside some units for income-restricted tenants. That's me. So here I am in a building that's only two or three years old, built to modern standards, including insulation. That alone will save me a ton in power bills. It's just amazing. I'm in a beautiful unit in a beautiful building, with a whole lot in very walkable distance.
Now to resume work on my well-being, to prepare for upcoming challenges, of which more in another post.
- Just then, when it was least expected...
