By November 30th, two sets of tenants had been banished from our village. Actually, it's a mundane residential development in Arizona. But, for those of us in its 100 units, it's home. And today we have settled back into the routines we love so much.
Small changes can make big differences. Sure, there's a place for climate summits and UN pow-wows. But for most of us little people, it doesn't take much to create the platforms for a better life.
We had all experienced that the Barbarians were at the gate, so to speak. We did what it took to push back. And we succeeded. The bad vibes are gone. We talk with each other without tension, neighbor-to-neighbor. And, at least for right now, we forget about our age, hustling for the next job or assignment, and trying to integrate wellness into how we eat. It's a wonderful life.
