The area is filled with people, neighbors rarely around at the same time bumping into each other with the usual neighbor issues and relations.

Gets in the way of peace a bit, though the ravens, and jays, and visiting, frolicking squirrels are doing their best.

This is a holiday to be sure, a day truly worthy of celebration, and yet, for me, in my quest to restore a rhythm and break through the impasse it is not an entirely welcomed day.

Ah, well.
