The people in your neighbourhood...
I was reminded of that Sesame Street song: "who are the people in your neighbourhood? - the people that you meet, when you're walking down the street" - this sunny winter morning as I walked the dogs. There are people I see regularly, daily even, who I've never done more than nod at or say "Good morning" to. There are some who stop to chat, and even some whose (first) names I know. There are several of us who know each other's dog's names, but not each others. There are people living nearby to whom I wave, but we have never spoken.
Suburban life? I think people speak to each other more readily in the city - what is your experience?
