City to Impose New Limits on Tax Exemptions

This just in from Erik and the BIA blog:

Next Tuesday evening, February 6th, the Tacoma City Council will consider enacting a one-year moratorium on the multifamily tax exemption for housing projects in downtown Tacoma with fewer than 30 units or a density lower than 80 units per acre.

Public comment won’t be opened until April 10th.  I’m sure you have an opinion…

Daniel, you’re always sad or depressed.

I know it’s the self-defeating dream of the poet and many writers to wallow in the depths of their misery, but c’mon.

Life is much too good for living in the shadows. The second you thought jumping off a bridge sounded good, that should have been a warning that something ain’t right.

They make prozac and stuff. Go see a doctor, depression is an illness you know.

So what if Daniel is a little bit of a debbie downer on occasion? The moral of this story was that he was reminded of his awesome.  What I wouldn’t give to be reminded of my awesome this week!

I’d been more of a “piece-of-crap-hatch-back-meets-telephone-pole” kind of person, rather than your “flyin’ off a bridge” type.  Not so much anymore—too much on the to-do/to-be list.  There’s that one faith that embraces this “Great Commission” concept; taking our little lights of awesome, shining them to the ends of the earth (but not in a hyper-religious-spastic-strobey-seizure-inducing way), …

Life is turning out to be like one big collaborative installation for me—I’m not in it on my own, nor am I the “Boss” of it.  For me alone to decide that it’s “finished”, or that the elements that I am accountable for are “done”, snuffing out my own little awesome, would be like “Some (not so)Great Presumption”.  There are more days to come like 11-04-08.  Our collaborative awesome just isn’t finished yet.
