For some time now, I've been hearing that "small is the new big." Downsizing is the smart way to go! That's good news for our family. We have a four-bedroom plus den, two-bathroom, ranch-style home of less than 2,000 square feet, maybe 1850 or so. In L.A. where big homes are BIG, up until recently, folks here have been considering this a "small" home. It's nice to know that our size is now desirable. Less energy, less upkeep, less maintenance, lower mortgage, a whole lot of less. I think it was in the 1990s that business-wise baby boomers changed the terminology of "problems" in the marketplace to "challenges," and, voila, just like that, problems disappeared. Now the new catchword, also baby boomer inspired, is "re-purposing." People are re-purposing, not only their business decisions, but their lives. Sounds good to me. I've been re-purposing myself for a while. I just didn't have the vocabulary to go along with it yet.
