Just across the way in a condo with big windows facing my home, I recently became aware of a potentially attractive, potentially interesting neighbor. How long has this person been there, I wonder.
Their drapes drawn back and all brightly lit up I spotted this person, became intrigued and have remain intrigued. I think: this person lives alone, enjoys some computer time in the evenings and no I am not a peeping tom. I can see all of this from the kitchen window even with my poor eyesight.
On one more than occasion while this neighbor was out on their back patio I ventured fairly near as I took out my trash, bins are not far away. I heard or sensed a type of scurrying to look busy as I approached. With trash tossed, I returned without a word. If only he had said, Hello.
Every now and then I see other people there and wonder who they are, family? friends? Then, I had a strange thought that they were intruding on any progress to connect that may have been slowly unfolding. Oh gee! I need to get a life and maybe some day a partner.
