Cash Conceit

Let this be the last so-called housing bubble story you read. Yet the phenomenon is real, and I can’t refrain from musing on its impact.

Houses in my neighborhood are selling for over twice what I paid for our home several years ago. With a vague sense of foreboding infecting the nation, I’ve begun to consider cashing out.

Why not sell everything down? I could set up camp in federal parks, traveling to the next site only when the park rangers insisted we move on. Home schooling is appealing, and I’d migrate as weather dictated. Presuming good health, the largest expenses would be a wireless connection, gas, food and bug spray.

See you in 2010...
