Different Wiring

Cindi’s house is under contract after lengthy negotiations. One buyer wanted Cindi to cut down three hundred trees on her land. Who buys land in a heavily forested canyon and then wants most of the trees cut down? She’s moving out on Friday just a week before the closing. It’s the end of an era of mountain living and the start of a new adventure in the New Mexican desert.

Most of Cindi’s furnishing are going into storage. She’ll be homeless for a few months. Friends will be hosting her in various states. She’ll also be horseback riding in Spain for ten days. Cindi is bringing her art collection to my house for safe keeping. I’ll get the hang two very expensive paintings in my house until she finds new digs in Santa Fe. The rest will be stored in the basement. I’ve cautioned her that my insurance will not cover her artwork if my house burns down.

I amazed at how Cindi can throw caution to the wind and turn her life upside down. Closing a business, selling a house, vacationing in Spain all without one clue as to where she’s going to live, or, if her art will support her. I’m not wired the same way.

The developer fled Denver and now resides in Manhattan.
