Day One, 2023

It was raining on New Year’s Eve as I drove home. I arrived home about two minutes to midnight. The neighborhood was west and dark. As the clock strikes midnight, I heard noises from outside my car. Suddenly people were out on the street, in the rain, cheering for the new year.

I exited my car and immediately greeted by a neighbor, handed me a cooking lid and a large spoon. Sounds of pots and pans can be heard along the new year’s cheer.

We were all somewhat dancing in the rain and wished each others well for the year to come.

We did not need a fancy party In-N-Out neighborhood, just good neighbors.

To all of you, welcome to 2023.
