I have no idea how someone moves from incredibly beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona to Owens Cross Roads Alabama. My bass player and his incredibly successful wife live in Isleworth, Florida (think Shaquille O’Neil and Tiger Woods, and others) and HE wants to move to be near his kids in Alabama. WHY would any human being do this ? Why would ANY human being want to abandon the professional television industry ? You know – there is only the professional entertainment industry (audio, video, music, graphics, internet, acting, dance, art) – anything else is meaningless ! All those lawyers, doctors, scientists, teachers, etc. wish they were us !
There is no “retirement” – there is only this. And then we turn into sand.
Cost of living, large concentration of aerospace and NASA campuses (we are “Rocket City”), friendly people, reliable power and water, friendly and helpful police and sheriffs, outstanding and non-presumptuous food, Rivers, Creeks, Lakes, Rain, Nashville, fishing 365 days a year, great golf without the threat of death after 9AM, Roads that are not in contention for “Best Manual Solution for Passing a Kidney Stone”. This move was an upgrade on every level ?.
