The next day while in the office at 5:30 pm, I saw the light on in my office neighbor’s window across the way. I opened mine and yelled out to him. He opened his with a big smile. Enjoying the connection and conversation, he held up the Starbucks coffee cup, his daily delivery. I prodded him on the front stoop the day before, his Starbucks delivery in hand…"walk out the door and support one of our small businesses; the bagel shop makes the best cappuccino and americano. Just make sure you have Judy do it.”
So, from his window he tells me that it’s because of the convenience and time savings. He doesn’t take the time to go the 1/2 block daily, and so misses out on the connection, the neighborly familiarity with local businesses that's easily cultivated just out our door.
