Street of Hermits

hd-thinking-imagesI live in a street of hermits. I know people are there. I hear them putting out their rubbish bins in the evening. I see their TVs flickering in the windows at night. I hear the postman on his little buzz bike putting things in letter boxes, cars pulling in and out of driveways, voices in the street. I have not seen anybody for years. Perhaps I should get out more.

  1. It’s a sad thing to not mix with your neighbours … I know my closest neighbours by name, but we don’t ‘do things’ together … Would they help me if needed? I think so, one of them certainly helped me the one and only time I needed help. I think I’d do the same, I hope I would, anyway, that’s for sure.
