A Neighborly Connection

Jul 7, 2014 by



Summer is a great time to get to know your neighbors. Stop and think. How many of the families on your block do you know? If you are in an apartment, your floor or wing? If in a condo, your unit? You get the idea. Break it down to a 10-12 families that live around you. Do you know them? Have you tried?

We just had the 4th of July last week and every year we shoot off fireworks on our street with our neighbors. Fortunately, we live on a street that is like a cul-de-sac — no one else needs to drive on our street. So we set up ladders in the middle of the street and set off our fireworks together. (For you mid-westerners, we are not allowed air-born fireworks in California. Ladders are our way of getting our “fountains” a little higher and more festive.) It’s a very impromptu gathering at sundown, but we all love coming together every year. It’s another way for us to connect.

So why is it so important to connect with your neighbors?
