Our neighbor said she hasn't seen us in a while, and just wanted to check in. We chatted a bit, she told us about Pool Passes, the mosquito sprayer truck is going to spray later this week...just normal neighborhood stuff. We talk to this neighbor pretty regularly, she's super awesome, but for some reason this moment made me think, "We live in a ‘Leave it to Beaver’ neighborhood." “Leave it to Beaver” was a 1950’s American television show that euphemistically portrayed contemporary suburban life in the United States. The neighborhood was peaceful and full of good neighbors. I know that seems trite in some way that I'm comparing our neighborhood to a 1950's sitcom, but I felt like I was in the TV show. It was a surreal feeling. The crazy thing is, we have lived in this neighborhood for 4 years, and all of our neighbors have been super great, so this isn't new. We wave at our neighbors when they are driving down the street or mowing their lawn. We talk to our neighbors about the weather or parties they are having. We know all of our neighbors' names, even the names of their dogs. And everyone has always been so nice. But for some reason, today, this one moment stood out. I don't know why this moment made me realize how lucky we are to live in a nice place like this. My perception before today was that we lived in just “a good neighborhood,” but today, my perception is now we are in a “TV show” neighborhood...which is really good. Which makes me so much happier. So maybe 9/10 of reality is perception. If we choose to perceive the world as better, then maybe it will be better. I don't know if I am just talking out of my ass, haha, but it certainty feels real. Anyway, it was just a thought rolling though my head. Stay frosty people. Thanks for reading. 50% allocated to ph-fund.
