“The street was blocked off so the kids had lots of room to play. The lack of traffic and parked cars really changed the character of the the street, making it feel more like an inviting part of the interior of the house. It was like we extended the boundary of our living room out into the street to overlap with the neighbors’. Everyone came out and grilled and socialized as if we all shared a common courtyard in the same building. Wish it could be like that every day!”
I think this is one of the best ways to build community. You had old, young, black, white etc. All with smiles. A beautiful sight and most definitely part of the beautiful life.
