There are many people nowdays who don´t know the name, age or pofession of their neighbors. Well known is possibly only the number of yelling children. Many of them say "Hallo" when meeting someone on the staircase or in the elevator without knowing that She or He lives next door. It´s a fact to lament but it could be changed. It´s much nicer to be a part of a community then to be an anonymous among strangers.
We are lucky here in our small holiday community in Klenovica. We have been knowing each other for years, we share parts of our life with our neighbors without disturbing each other or intruding in privacy. Yesterday, while gardening in my rock garden my neighbor Jozica showed up with a plate of fresh figs, my favorite fruit.
And today an other friend, Duska, brought dried lavander for my wardrobes. The air in my appartement is now fragrant with its smell.
Besides lavander she brought some fabrics and lace and asked me if I would sew gift bags for her lavander.
I´ll do it with pleasure. We are friends and are pleased to do favors to each other. Good neighbor relations are a real blessing for a community.
