At the most recent HOA meeting, some gestures were made toward neighborliness. (Please see New Beginnings.) The new chairman even mentioned the word! Today a well lit lobby grabbed the attention of every resident and guest that walked through. The improved lighting brought on a lot of smiles and stimulated conversation (about lighting) among neighbors.
After two years of decreasing lighting over entry doors, in trash rooms, and in stairwells, it was a pleasant surprise to find good lighting restored in the lobby. Hopefully this is the start of a trend.
There is talk that the decorating committee is thinking about improved lighting, too.
It is the little things, like lighting, that bring out the smiles, and the neighborliness.
