Looking Ahead

Change This!

Change is a challenge. It’s not easy. It goes against self-interest. It alters the path we thought we saw just ahead. It creates discomfort and uncertainty. And yet it’s the only way to improve existence.

Change can be a public rallying cry, but it is also intensely intimate. You can’t make change without getting personally involved. You can’t experience change without allowing it to wash over you and leave you…well…changed.

This June my two children will graduate high school, and we had planned on moving out of Arlington at that point because it is so expensive to buy here. So last fall we began looking out west of metro DC for a lot on which to build a house. We had always built, and we were ready to do so again. Something not as big as we were used to, but with enough room so when the kids came home from college they had a place to stay.
