Welcome to my neighborhood.

Welcome to my neighborhood.

Won't you be my neighbor? Hello Neighbor! The words from Fred Rogers or Mister Rogers as so many would call him. I recently purchased a pair of Sperry shoes like Mister Rogers wore on his show and he welcomed his audience into his neighborhood. Oh, what a beautiful day in the neighborhood it was. 

For me, the reason I bought these shoes is I wanted in some way to learn and understand from Mister Rogers. To remind me that I want a happy, joy-filled neighborhood. However, nowadays that seems like make-belief. 

As most of us including myself don't even know our neighbors. With COVID 19 that has made it a challenge for sure. However, before that, I don't think I could name more than four of my current neighbors. 

No one is to blame for this but me. I haven't taken the time to get to know them. So maybe, in some odd way by putting on these shoes I remind myself to go be a neighbor to someone today.
