This question is so old. It’s almost a year old and the funny thing is I think about it all the time. I found this notepad while cleaning out a cupboard in my kitchen but I still love the question. I had my granddaughter Trinity one morning before school. On a two hour late start and we started watching Hairspray. This opening scene is what inspired my question. It’s at 140 into the video when she opens her front door and goes outside.
It hit me that I can’t even begin to imagine opening my front door to that. Or any other door for that matter. I just can’t imagine not having a yard. Or grass. Or a driveway or deck. I just simply can’t imagine it.
Since I noticed that that morning, it made it seem so magnified while watching other things. Like all the Law and Order’s and CSI’s that take place in NYC. Don’t get me wrong, there are some very beautiful homes and neighborhoods but to me, it’s so foreign.
I also realize that not many people live like I do either. I mean I could go outside and unless those pesky neighbors across the road or down the road have binoculars out, I can do pretty much whatever I please and nobody would know.
Just what is your neighborhood like? Do you have privacy? What is it you see when you open your front door?
