Update: The house was sold in January 2022. It’s taken a while to accept it’s gone. Sometimes I walk through the rooms in my mind and remember what was. I’m on a new road and have no idea where it will lead. I’ll check in next June with an update. Today I’m in a hotel in Philly visiting with my daughter. Sunday I will travel back to RI and then on to Central MA to my rental.
Your post before today’s was on June 23, 2021, a whole year and a day ago: it is amazing that you are back with an update and I appreciate you for being back!
“I’m on a new road and have no idea where it will lead” – a year ago, you shared about your old, worthwhile, honorable road: “I dedicated my professional life to social work – running a foster care agency and my practice as a therapist working with police, first responders, firefighters”.
Your old road was- is about overcoming your pain through helping others, if I understand correctly (based on what you shared a year ago: “I have spent basically my entire life trying to overcome pain in one form or another”).
I hope to read about your new road when you post next time, best wishes to you!
