How I Decided to Move to Las Vegas In 12 Hours

My friend Leo suggested once that I write a post about how I make decisions. Since then I've been waiting for the right moment, one where I made a large decision in a very short amount of time. That happened today, when I decided to move to Las Vegas.

From time to time I check real estate prices in Detroit or Las Vegas. They're the two major US cities I'm aware of that were disproportionately crippled by the housing crash. Detroit more so, but it's cold up there and I've never been, so buying a house there isn't just fantasy.

On the other hand, I go to Vegas all the time, so I'm familiar with it. I like to play poker there, I have a handful of friends there, and I've been frequently enough that I have a bunch of favorite haunts. The Ethiopian restaurants are amazing.

Last night, after work, I spent half an hour looking at condos and townhouses for sale. In case you don't have this particular hobby, there are lots of condos in Las Vegas that are under $75k. The mortgage on one of these things would be less than $300.

On Where Pianos Roam

 I have decided to take an extended break from blogging for a while.  So, this will be my last post here on WPR until some time next year.  This decision has not come easily because I love my little blog.  Other things, however, are calling my attention and will need it undividedly. 

First off, I hope (and pray) that work on my next album of music will get started.  There's a lot involved, and I need to just make it happen. 

Secondly, there's some visual art work that I want to work on as I continue to develop my online art store Tropical Shade of Green.

Then, of course, I've launched a new season of The Adventures of Oreo and Buttercup.  There are ten new episodes up and coming. 

Lastly, I have some living to do.  Being a resident in downtown Nashville is not something that I will take for granted.  I want to take the time to enjoy these surroundings and connect with people.  I love where I live right now, and it's important for me to embrace it all.
