Living in the heart of our little town, I get to do a lot of people watching. As we get closer to spring more people are out walking around town during the day. They are shopping, exercising, meeting friends for lunch. They are beginning to stop into the Chamber of Commerce for maps and visitor guides. Everyone is looking forward to warm summer days and evenings around the bonfire.
Things are still pretty quiet in town at night though, even on the weekends. The Mexican restaurant on the block does good business, both dine in and carry out. Not much else happening right now. The little theater hasn’t reopened yet and the bars have to close by 11.
I’m looking forward to the day when bars can bring back live music, dancing and karaoke! When the streets are full of people laughing and having fun. When my Friday night isn’t spent reorganizing my closet and falling asleep before midnight!
We are less than 2 months away from bringing out the balcony furniture, having the first spring flowers push their way up through the ground, having 8:30pm sunsets. I wonder what those Friday nights will look like.
