Wouldn't it be great if you could pick your neighbors?
I mean really pick them.

How would you like to find a great place to live and then fill the adjoining houses and streets with your favorite people?
Those people that you don't see enough of no matter how close/far they live from you?
The people that you bring up in conversations with other people and end up saying "I just love them" to the ones you know best?
The people you think about when you have hard decisions to make, and you try to imagine what they would do in your shoes?
The people you want to be more like?

I've got a mental list of mine - my favorites, that is - and I've been thinking a lot about how I'd love to live closer to them all.  To play and work and learn and raise my family with them.

I only just realized - that's heaven.

Ooh ooh! Pick me! I pick you! =0) But really. I do. And that certainly will be heaven.

Mrs. Farrer, you pretty much inspired this post. In my fantasy neighborhood you and Dani are at LEAST in the circle. :)
