The new neighborhood I'm living in has a lot of perfection to it for me: it's still "off the radar". I own a warehouse space in the neighborhood and one of my front companies operates out of there, so making a new home wasn't too difficult: put up a gigantic wall, create a home in the back 40%. It really is perfect: no one knows its a home, and I can slip in and out through the alley discretely. Plus, I don't plan on having friends visit regularly, so I have my own little island right on the raging sea that I call Chicago.
I have my bedroom built, a guest room, a private bathroom, a nice little kitchen and eating area, and a living room. It isn't too bad, and the privacy is amazing. There's an attached apartment building upstairs from my warehouse, so if I want to meet the neighbors, I have that option. A private rooftop deck adds to my options as well, although it's more "roof" than "deck" at the moment, but changes are coming as I desire them.
With fall ahead, my life is quickly coming to a pace that suits me, as well: the summer was comfortable and relaxing, with most of my time spent at the beach, other than the odd and over-reliable client meeting. With Europe and South American on my radar for fall and winter, I am certain of good things ahead.
