We lived there for ten years in one half of a duplex. In the other half was a family with older kids, high-schoolers when we moved in. The grown-ups seemed older, maybe they were the grandparents. They were never unfriendly, but we never did anything more neighborly than wave to each other occasionally. We had been there a pretty long time, at least five years, when I was at home by myself one day and heard someone next door walk up the stairs. I was surprised by how noticeable it was. Then I started thinking about how our family was never particularly quiet and how saintly that family was to put up with us. Or maybe they were all hard of hearing, but it was so nice to leave the misery of living above the chow owners that I've since aimed to be a person who will not be bothered by the din of people living their lives. My need for forbearance has been mitigated somewhat by the advent of noise canceling headphones.
Here are the links I won't get to this weekend but I would like to read them eventually. Working at the early voting centers has bulldozed this week for me.
