A certain wonderful intimacy

It speaks volumes when you roll out of bed, put on some shoes then drag yourself outside to grab the paper and you see your neighbor and say ‘hi’ without a thought of how crappy you look. And then later, still no adjustment in the crap look, wander down a few doors to some other neighbors just getting over a hangover to chat over nothing much over breakfast. It is 10:30AM I have yet to brush, wash or anything and I’ve already carried on a conversation with several people on my block. Of course, come noon I will have no excuse and will need to clean up. But I just thought about how comfortable we are with each other, letting each other into our homes, and such and it is wonderful.
Yes, I normally don’t post on the weekends but I had to share.
