I just wanted to take a moment and wish our all neighbors and friends a Happy Thanksgiving. The past year has seen many changes and challenges for us personally as well as for the neighborhood.
Just a few moments ago on my morning walk I wandered over to look at the destruction happening adjacent to the LTACH site, at the swath of trees now turned to wood chips, the natural flow of the small creek disrupted in favor of someone’s idea of “management”. As with a lot of things, this situation will get worse before it gets better.
But there is still much to be thankful for. We live in a beautiful neighborhood, not just in terms of aesthetics but also in terms of spirit – a place with history, a place of caring for one another.
New Years Day we will have an open house here at 2011 N Country Club. After that, I hope to organize a series of monthly “coffees” – a casual social event of a morning at someone’s home. This would be a great way to promote neighborhood interaction on a regular basis in an informal setting. And it could possibly be done in conjunction with neighborhood “home tours”: we have a lot of historic or interesting homes here in the neighborhood, and it might be nice to give people a chance to see them on the inside. If you would be interested in hosting such a “coffee”, please leave a comment, drop me a note at email@example.com , or chat with me about it on New Years.
Best wishes -
Just a quick note – we seem to have been adopted by a very affectionate small black and tan calico cat with lovely yellow eyes. Female, I’m guessing between 6 and 9 months old. If you, or anyone you know here in the area, is missing such a cat, drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
