By: Marcene, Panorama Resident
Here at last! Finally moved into my new home at Panorama. All those boxes! Why do we need all this stuff? And I got rid of a lot and consider myself pretty much of a minimalist. So much for that opinion. Took off a few days from work to unpack so was to and from the house, putting flattened boxes curbside for recycling. Every so often a resident or two out for a walk (and a dog or two along with them) strolled by and waved. All welcomed me to Panorama and commiserated about the stuff. What a great feeling. I am living in that proverbial ‘village’ we all talk about. You know what it felt like? Like I was in Bedford Falls – you know, from ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’? I picture George Bailey running down the street in the snow and every one is waving and yelling, “Merry Christmas, George!” A feeling of belonging and ‘neighborhood’.
