Neighborhood Connections (30 Days of Gratitude: Day 25)

In a world where personal relationships often are interrupted by fences and computer screens, finding a neighborhood connection is especially meaningful.  Catsby was one of those connectors.

Catsby was a neighborhood fixture — and when he was hit by a car, the neighborhood mourned. [You can read about his story here.] The neighborhood also connected. We were reminded of all the places where our lives intersect … where our kids cross paths … where we all have that same spot in our hearts for kindness and compassion.

Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

After shoveling the fresh, heavy wet snow this morning, my faithful friend and I headed out into the neighborhood for a walk (with phone in hand, ready to capture a few shots for this week’s photo challenge).  Clumps of wet snow periodically fell from the trees, crows called to each other from snow-covered tree tops, runners were out enjoying the beautiful morning, and my dog said hello to some of his four-legged friends with whom we crossed paths while out and about.

Such a pretty, peaceful morning in the neighborhood!
