Tell me a story, bedtime ritual with the kids and as adults around the open Maine camp fire.
Weaving the wisdom, humor, one more effort to unlock a mystery of life into something entertaining.
Simple and easy like sugar added to the medicine.

Are in the right place and profession at whatever stage of your life.
Story telling does not mean fibbing, stretching, spinning a yawn meant to hurt or deceive.

No one is out to take advantage of any one.
Just a sincere effort to shake up the delivery, communications a tad. Because with blogging, you don't see the facial cues. No pregnant pause before something is said for emphasis. No raised eyebrow, hand gestures waving to make a point. To show how serious, passionate you are about a subject or issue.
The voice heard in hitching a ride on the recycled electrons in the real estate property listing hunt and peck.
Done with your tongue tip showing the effort that only you can see from this side of the monitor glass.
Oh sure you can add a colored, larger font to build into the blog message something more. Sprinkle it with graphics, images and more white space.
But tone of voice in the written word means you have to create the sparkle, added communication with words not inflection.
Selling the sizzle not the steak so no one is left winking at a girl in the dark which always gets pretty poor results.
So over the years here on Active Rain blog, have posted a few tales.
Reworked some old classic stories to bring them into today with a real estate related emphasis in the overhaul. Hope you like real estate stories wrapped around an old familiar theme ....
Maine, big state, less people, drop dead gorgeous four season natural surroundings. Come for a day, then just try to stay away. End up staying a life time.
