Over the past few years LT, who lives across the street, and I have hosted gatherings to bring our near neighbors together. Mind you, we come from divergent political positions, some even at pole opposites, however all who attend uphold a tacit agreement to leave our politics at the door. We come together sharing food and spirits, to celebrate being a community that looks out for one another.
This December was my turn to have the holiday gathering. Coming as it did, after the midterm election (the results of which I continue to celebrate), I am pleased that our tradition of civility and good cheer endures.
Cheers to peaceful commemorations of our shared humanity!
