homeless but not hopeless
Well in everyones life a little rain must pour , but in our case it came from the sprinkler system pipes over my studio on the 2nd floor. While we have been in Bisbee the pipes froze and broke in our condo back home in Santa Fe and tons of water poured down and the ceilings caved in . The condo maintenance man saw water running out the doors and truned off the main valve . Our friend Fred took these pictures after we called him for his help . I have not had the courage to go home yet and see the mess, but am letting the pros handle everything. We have been advised that these types of total losses are very emotional for home owners .Water flooded down the stairs and walls to the first floor . The entire place now needs gutting as all the walls are ruined and many furnishings and electronics are ruined too. Our insurance company sent an emergency crew over to start the salvage and brought out a large container . Everything will be moved into it and then sent to a place to dry out what can be saved .Books and papers are frozen and sent to Texas to a restoration place. Once everything is moved out the gutting of walls etc. can happen and rebuilding can begin. I am trying to figure out what the universe is trying to tell me . My gut feeling is saying Santa Fe is not for you "my Dear" ( My friend Renee would agree I bet!!! ) as it has done it to you again!! I have had past bad luck in Santa Fe but keep moving away and then insisting on coming back!! I think it is time to let go for good and move on ... trust the universe to open new doors and walk through them to hopefully new opportunities . Any one have any ideas ???? Cal and I are serious!!! If anyone knows of a good very inexpensive place to live and with opportunities for 2 creative people let me know . Cal has great building and handyman skills . Any where in the country will do we are only looking for the open door of change !
