There came a point when it became clear to me that new adventures were calling. The life of a performing musician can be a solitary one. There are countless hours spent alone, practicing and preparing. More and more, I yearned for more collaboration, and interaction with people. I knew I was ready for a change. As I saw fewer and less satisfying possibilities for myself as a harpist, I knew it was time to set my sights on a new endeavor. I started to consider the possibility of real estate.
