Building Community

Episode 85

Recently we moved from the suburbs to the city.  We sold our home of 19 years and moved closer to two of our children. I have found it to be a bigger contrast in lifestyle than I had expected.

Here are a few new things I am getting use to:

  • Everyone walks
  • If driving is needed – Uber is called
  • Parking App is required to cover any street parking when you do drive
  • One-way streets, which I have gone down the wrong way
  • Pedestrians suddenly stepping out into on-coming traffic
  • Pets have their own place in restaurants
  • Festivities take place throughout the city every weekend
  • Outdoors is where everyone gathers

The city life here is geared toward community, where kindness flows freely. I am not sure how to put words to what I have encountered, but let me give it a shot.
