Once More, Into the Woods

Once More, Into the Woods

Life, it seems, has its own agenda. I had hoped for some quiet time, to help me and my family recover from the calamities of the past year. But alas, incredibly, we are once again being forced out of our home.

It's scary. If you're trying to rent a house in coastal California right now God help you. It's like a hellish game of musical chairs. In California's ongoing housing crisis, I've always thought of my family as among the lucky ones—we can afford to pay extreme amounts of rent.

But the synergy of undersupply plus the pandemic has created something truly monstrous. It's tough. I never understood the true cost of losing one's home, and everything that comes with it. I understand now.

So sorry to hear that, Andy. Musical chairs without enough chairs... hope you are able to find something quickly.

This is truly awful. I'm so sorry to hear that Andy. Losing your home changes a lot. A dear friend of mine has told me about the unbelievable levels of stress. Hoping for resolution of this crazy crisis and peace for you and your family.

If you can afford extreme amounts of rent, but why just throw your money away to a landlord? I think for the similar amount of money you could buy your own home!
