Neighbourhood II

Apartment buildings ( 200 units plus) are typically anonymous places; most people living in them would be hard pressed to name 2 neighbours living on the same floor. I find it hard to separate my own gregariousness and the nature of our building. I know my neighbours and many other people in our building . It may just me - being very nosy and intruding on fellow tenants. Still, people here are not resistant to conversation. One factor that really contributes to the breaking down of barriers between tenants is the annual Christmas Party. All tenants are invited to a wing-ding in the spacious lobby every year. Not all attend, but, many barriers are broken here. I came back with 5 new names to put to familiar faces from this year's party. I would call that small victories.
