A New Nest for Silus

Well, it's been remarkably quiet here... and mostly because I've been so focused on my biggest shiny thing to date: a new condo.

I've sold my condo in Provo, and closed last night on a nice new pad in downtown Salt Lake City. It wasn't a smooth ride by any stretch of the imagination... but every step of the way Heavenly Father was there, clearing the way. I've said it before, and it bears repeating: I live a charmed life. I am truly blessed.

I'd like to thank all my friends who kept me in their thoughts and prayers... It was very much appreciated.

Pictures and details to follow.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Congratulations, Silas! I'll look foward to seeing the pictures of your new pad. Downtown SLC is a great place to live!

You're moving downtown? I'm so jealous.

I'm really excited... and a little apprehensive, as this is my first move to a place without a safety net. My move to California after high school was to my sister's place; my move from there to Qu├ębec was for an LDS mission; from there I went to school in Provo, where I had an enormous support mechanism; the first home I purchased was in Provo, where I knew the terrain... now, I've sold my first home, and I'm moving to a town where I am — though surrounded by people who love me — so much more on my own than I've been before. It's strange... it's like I've just turned 25 again.

Should be fun!

( And I hear that I've got great neighbors. )

Yeah, things have really been quiet here at the Mill. I was wondering. When do you leave?

Silus Grok said...

I'll spend the night up there a few times to get a sense of what needs to happen before I move (paint, floor refinishing, and the like)... and then I'll move the first week of December.

Oh... be sure to read around the site if you haven't before ... lot's of great stuff (if I do say so myself).

: )

I love the poetry you've posted on your site, by the by.

Very nice.

Congrats-you're so much closer. Does this mean that you'll avail yourself more frequently? Or is this to put you closer to your work?

I'm super excited to see the place. Have you moved already? Are you moving over thanksgiving? Do you need a hand?

Hey there, Daniel.

I'll spend the night up there a few times to get a sense of what needs to happen before I move (paint, floor refinishing, and the like)... and then I'll move the first week of December.
