Answer
Every place I have moved to so far was not because of the place, but because of a job.

Think of what you want to create (have).  Think of what you need to do to create that (do).  Think of where the opportunity, resources, conditions exist to do that, and that is where you would go (be).

You have a choice of where to live only to the degree that you can be, and do, and have whatever you have chosen, in more than one place, or in literally any place.

You can't mine coal at the beach, cannot fish on a mountain slope, cannot operate a winery in the desert.  These "haves" and "dos" can only "be" where the resources exist.  You can write anywhere.  And if you really are a writer, you owe it to yourself and your craft to do it in surroundings which YOU find most conducive to your work - and so then whatever the town, city or village is like becomes more important than if, say, all you knew how to do was wash dishes, and the only dish-washing job was two towns away.

I will be retiring, at least partially retiring, in the next few years.  Our family has selected and purchased land in another state that fits what we want to create in our retirement - a small, self-sustaining agricultural operation from which we could potentially support ourselves and sell our excess.  Again, where we want to BE is because of what we want to DO, because of what we want to HAVE.

Expertise

I am able to answer questions regarding Scientology practices and procedures, religious philosophy, donations, religious rites, management, administrative and staff matters.

Experience

I am a second generation Scientologist whose parents began in Dianetics in 1950 and studied directly with L. Ron Hubbard. I have been personally active in the church for nearly 50 years, have eleven years former staff experience in both technical and administrative areas, and extensive technical and administative training and counseling. I am "clear" and "OT." I come from an extended family of many religions, but my spouse and children are Scientologists, as are my siblings and their spouses, several cousins, nieces, nephews, an aunt, and an uncle. Between us we have had every good and bad experience one might go through in the church at every level.
