It’s rare , in our fast paced lives where in our local living places we know few of our neighbors and total strangers become potential friends.
Only a small fraction of the local community (15) people showed up to welcome the new homeowners on Tuesday evening . And celebrating John leaving the local community. An impressive mostly organic potluck spread greeted the visitors in a mostly empty house. The new homeowners brought a couple of dozen folding chairs. We filled the great room , flowed into the kitchen and out onto the patio deck.
The relaxed feeling amongst this group reflected the care and respect that surrounds the unusually cordial relationships John has established in his stay in this Columbia East neighborhood. Learning about each others lives and values. Larry and Dina loving accepted the baton that John was passing over to them. His lovely community was becoming theirs.
Oh Joy! The Celebration and Union of Perfect Sellers and New Owners
