  • This is the view from the house I am in. It's in Vermont, up a dirt road, with a view of Mt. Abraham and pines, birches and maples all round.

    I rent the house; now the owner has decided to sell. I'm trying to decide whether to buy.

    It would be the biggest decision i've ever made, and change my life for years to come, affecting relationships, careers, everything.

    I don't know what to do. I don't know how to decide.
