The month of August 2017 brought a stunning alignment of the sun and moon, creating a total eclipse across much of the United States. That event seemed to trigger my awareness of other things coming into alignment, especially as the next few days brought some tantalizing tidbits about tiny houses, pocket neighborhoods, and seniors to my attention.

On TUESDAY 8/22, I got an email from a woman telling me that her partner’s goal is to make tiny houses specifically for seniors.

On WEDNESDAY 8/23, I read an article from “Senior Housing News” saying that “it’s only a matter of time before the [micro-design] trend hits senior housing … as a cost-effective and low maintenance style of living.”
