This whole neighbor discussion often revolves around the idea of what we want from our neighbors, and what many want is no intrusion. If I’m honest that is what I want. I’m home, I’m tired, I want to get into my shorts and be left alone with my family.

It is easier (though just plain selfish) to pretend not to see the man standing in his garage, or the woman gardening in her lawn, as I pull into my driveway. Eye contact could lead to a hand wave, or even worse–a conversation. Who knows where it all might lead?!
