What great Concrete suggestions! With little touches of wry humor, such as new neighbors who moved in TWO years ago! You inspire me to get out of ruts such as thinking that after years, it’s too late to introduce myself to neighbors. You write with Lots of what my mom always called “Red apples” — shiny, stand-out images and real examples, to illustrate your subject. I’ll go clean mold off the shower;) thanks
