Need inspirationI has occurred to me that if my friendly neighborhood drug dealers are gone from my sight, why bother blogging? What will be my inspiration? The liquor stores aren't as much of an issue these days as in years past. Most of them now carry wine I can cook with. The number of problem houses are down, but then again it is winter and the problems associated with them are less visible. Complaining about the neighborhood was the greatest inspiration to my writing.
I was looking back at some old posts, as this blog does go back to 2003, to add tags, so I can find stuff, and see how I and the neighborhood changed. I see that I'm getting closer to the neighborhood I wanted. If I could say anything to the 2003 or the 2000 (when I moved to Shaw) me, it would be, 'it's going to be okay.'
