Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Intersecting Paths

28 Aug

“One never reaches home,’ she said. ‘But where paths that have an affinity for each other intersect, the whole world looks like home, for a time.”
― Hermann Hesse
****************
Several winding paths led to my new home. I had put in an offer on a different house before this one, but when the offer of purchase on my old house fell through, I had to back out of the offer on what I thought was my dream house. I was heart broken, and thought nothing would ever compare to that perfect house. Well, I was wrong.

Linda Grossman, (World’s best realtor, blatant plug) not only found a new buyer for the old house, but found me the perfect new house for my new life. I didn’t even notice the green road sign at first. It more than convinced me that this was the way home. We had looked at so many houses, my head was spinning. Linda and I were scrambling, looking one last time for the perfect house. Then, we drove around past the sales office, and there it was. Ridgeway! The sign I was looking for. Ridgeway led to my new house. I couldn’t believe it. I was sold, and the house was bought.

I used to live on Ridgeway when I was a little girl. 2301 S. Ridgeway, Chicago, IL, Phone-LA-11344. We lived there when I was maybe four or five years old until fourteen. A lot of memories there.

Now, to make new wonderful memories here. The paths intersect.
