I like this post. Stories take time to tell, we need to take time to listen too.


This Reminds me of Molly the shopkeeper downstairs, she called us on the phone to alert us that the police inquired about the kids on the fire escape (ours). She only knew our phone number because it was on the Family Art Show invitation. (It was Shepherd and Dove, not Grace and Rain) Yes Rick knew they were out there.).....It won't happen again.


You're right, Jane Jacobs' book is great. Too bad I've only gotten through the first quarter of it. But I've read enough to know that putting yourself out there will ensure trusting relationships, create safe neighborhooods, and educate you about your surroundings. Ask. Tell. Learn. Join.
