Starting Again

Starting again in a new place is quite enlightening but also with its bumps. I wish the neighbour upstairs would stop screaming at her kids. It makes me want to scream at her, but I know that screaming back is never the answer. I wish it was easy to walk away and we could just pack up our bags and leave their noise and anger behind- or maybe even just pad the ceiling with something. Can you soundproof a roof?

Now I also wish we had more gatherings here- more sunshine and community with like-minded intelligent people. They seem like a thing of another lifetime. Shall we invite intelligent people down or should we pack up our bags and leave? I’m trying very hard to just stay in one place, but the place is making it hard.
