Something I've noticed is that this summer, people on the street in the neighborhood seem friendlier. More random people are saying hello to each other, having little chats in line or waiting for the bus, and so on. Maybe it's the hot weather letting people commiserate, maybe people are just happier, or to be optimistic, even that we're coming together more as a neighborhood.
Has anybody else noticed this? It's always nice to see diverse folks in the neighborhood chatting with each other.
