An Evening Of Poetry

posted on March 6th, 2017 | filed under: Uncategorized

An Evening Of PoetryIn the Valley of the Praiseful Tongue

An Evening of Poetry with Two Old Friends

Saturday April 1st  7 – 8:30 pm

At the Encinitas Community and Senior Center – Room 120*

 1140 Oakcrest Park Dr. Encinitas, CA 92024 ( b/t Balour Dr & Via Guadaupe)

Joseph writes: Paul and I met on the Mexican border in 1979, spirit brothers who now live at the farthest edges of the country – me in San Diego, Paul in Bar Harbor, Maine. Our paths and our work continue to reflect each other and overlap in many remarkable ways. Paul has been writing poetry for over 50 years, Joseph almost 30. He recognized and named the poet in me before I did. We have read together in New York, Massachusetts and Maine. He writes with a breadth and a depth and a craft that is a joy to experience and speaks his poetry in a way that is a joy to hear. I figure it is time I introduce Paul to the poetry community in San Diego. This evening is about saying hello, turning the poetry wheel, and enjoying each other.

Whatever hour you wake me… I awaken in the Holy trinity of our friendship:

Your gaze, Your smile,

The Word that blossoms between.

From Rubano, Tending the Sacred Fire

Paul writes: Joseph and I keep the sacred fire going through the night. You can take that at any level. But we do actually keep a central fire going when we partner in supporting vision quests. We overlap around 3 in the morning and sit a bit under the stars. I wrote on such an occasion: “Our words together, however deep, always boil down to one thing: that thing that makes us laugh or smile.” All water runs downhill to that point. I guess that’s friendship. Joseph’s poetry extracts the juice out of the air and makes it available for all to see and taste. He is a celebrant and a praise-singer. And he’s a sweet revelation for those who previously thought they didn’t like or didn’t “get” poetry.

Beauty holds the worlds in its trembling paw, seeking the soft and sometimes violent vehicle of its entry, not least in the stuttering epiphanies of the human tongue, the orgasmic crises of expectant and teetering inarticulateness, the searching and singular succession of words.

From Weiss, In the Valley of the Praiseful Tongue

The DeChamplain Group – A Year In Review & Looking Ahead

posted on January 24th, 2017 | filed under: Uncategorized

What a blessed year 2016 was….

We had the privilege of helping 30 families with their real estate moves. The wonderful part is that each family was a repeat client or a referral from our amazing clients.

Of course we had a lot of fun too! We had three big events in 2016 celebrating our clients. The first was our St. Patrick’s themed party at The Belching Beaver (PHOTOS). Our next event was the annual family bowling day in San Marcos (PHOTOS). Each year it gets more and more fun. Our last event of the year is near and dear to our hearts where the theme is always gratitude at our Pre-Thanksgiving Gratitude Party. This year we added live Brazilian music and a delicious dinner from Sabor de Vida Brazillian Grill (PHOTOS). We also joined the Movember foundation and are proud to announce that you helped us raise over $1000 dollars. Here is a short video of this awesome event – ENJOY!

2016 also brought us a new team member, Emilie Gaffney. Emilie is our dedicated Buyer’s agent with 12 years of sales and service experience – MEET THE TEAM.

In 2017…

We are looking forward to creating more rewarding real estate experiences for our clients, their friends and families. Spring of 2017 is going to be a terrific market for our buyers and sellers. We will keep you informed and up to date on the 2017 Market Trends with our monthly reporting from multiple sources.

And finally – what is most important is the value of your home. I’ll be contacting everyone during February to discuss your home’s true value. You may be excited to learn your home is worth more than when you bought it.

With much gratitude and excitement for what’s to come in 2017!

Hear What The Seller Had To SayWe Felt So Confident After Meeting We Listed The Very Next Day

558978_4267874328231_1114677705_nJeff and Jen were absolutely amazing to work with through the entire process of selling our home. From the first meeting (when we weren’t even sure if we were ready to sell) all the way to the close of escrow, one of them was always available to answer our questions and settle our nerves. After our first meeting we realized this was a great time to cash out the equity our home had made for us.

Jeff had really done his homework on the neighborhood and knew this was a great time to sell in our area. We felt so confident after that meeting we listed the very next day. They went above and beyond and gave us helpful advice on how to get the house ready to sell. Jen had a list of references available for everything we needed from a plumber, to a handyman, to carpet, to a house cleaner and finally movers.

They truly got us through it from day one until the end! Jeff always assured me that we would find the right buyer for our home and we did. I cannot think of a way the transaction could have gone any smoother. When it is time to buy our next home I know we will turn to Jeff and Jen.

We just love them! Thank you for everything,

The Glasgow’s
