I’ve had a very tumultuous few months with the recent sale of my land and cabin and setting up my new small house in Arizona. For the past 15 years or so I’ve been working as a freelance professional in the tv industry, often on the road all across America. As Los Angeles is the epicenter of the entertainment biz, I’ve been forced to keep a home there for the past decade in order to maintain my career stability.
The first few years of this blog have been focused on the “rancher” half of my UrbanRancher alter ego. This next chapter is dedicated to the “urban” side.
Now that I have a fantastic small house in the desert, it’s time to revisit and streamline my home base situation in LA. I will essentially be doing what I accomplished on a mountainside, but in the belly of the urban beast. Paperwork needs to be finalized and some details still need to be sorted out but I will take what I’ve learned from everyone in the tiny house movement and apply it to the big city.
I know many of y’all are focused on rural and off-grid living. I’ve climbed that hill and seen the gorgeous view from the top and blogged about it every step of the way. It turns out I’m not quite ready to chuck it all and leave civilization behind. I like the idea of keeping one foot in the urban fire as long as I can escape to the solitude of open spaces.
As a Gemini I’ve always struggled with wanting everything at the same time. I have 2 distinct careers (tv and music), 2 distinct homes (city and country), don’t get me started on my taste in music or my politics. I’m gonna die trying to have my tiny piece of cake and be able to eat it too.
Happy Thanksgiving and peace out everyone, I’ll post my next update after the holiday!
