I’m talking community as in your immediate vicinity wherever you live, not as in community.drownedinsound.com I think we can all agree that there is an enormous amount of community spirit on this online discussion platform!
The street I live on now seems to have a worrying amount of community spirit, yard sales that everybody comes together for, halloween done to a level I’ve never seen in England with neighbours decorating their own properties and spending the evening on their porches engaging with the community instead of being indoors ignoring the doorbell etc.
My level of community spirit extends to potentially smiling at a person with a neighbour with the ultimate aim of befriending the dog rather than the person. There is a lovely dog that uses our shared garden and the other day I was waving at her out of the window and the owner unexpectedly came outside so I felt obliged to wave to him as well despite the fact I have 0% interest in developing any kind of a rapport with the man. I’m hoping that this error of judgement doesn’t come back to bite me in the bum.
Anyway, how much community spirit have you got? Talk about community things in this thread.
