One Tiny Corner Of The Planet
Facebook has a similar feature where you can see the exact posts you made one year ago on this day. On a level of interest that has no value at all compared to the events listed above, I did just enjoy reading what I posted a year ago - the post that perhaps generated more amusing comments from my friends than any other. I re-post it here, sort of like a re-run of your favorite M*A*S*H episode. Enjoy!
And now the last word, one year later....I never did ask for that cup of sugar, nor did I take my dog to foul her lawn. I didn't get stoned or have a toilet paper tube thrown at me, nor did I write a short story about the incident. I didn't even set her straight by quoting city rules. I decided that some battles are not worth fighting and I realized that I have more important places to spend my energy.
My neighbor and I didn't exactly kiss and make up though I did cross paths with her in the alley once before I moved out of that house. We exchanged a pleasant enough hello. I suspect that she might still be keeping watch over her bin, guarding it from illicit recyclers everywhere, an ever-present sentinel over her tiny corner of the planet.
I wish her peace on earth.
