I hate the term real estate. It's cold and business-y, everything that tends to make me hide under the bed. What I write about is space: homes, cafes, places where you can do work, pet the cat, and Google your next-door-neighbor from 10 years ago. I write about places. And I like to do it from a personal perspective.

Room? Yes. Staff? No.

Interesting that the new state hospital in Coalinga would go so woefully unstaffed. Understandably, many professionals don't want to abandon urban areas for the much-more rural (and aroma-filled) town.

It also mirrors a real-estate trend, perhaps somewhat in the making -- we've seen consistent migration to the Central Valley and to smaller towns in search of more affordable housing. Could the fact that this flashy new hospital is having trouble getting people be an indicator that the tide is indeed turning?
