Last week I talked about our neighborhood
gathering
. It turns out there are photos online. There is a weekly
free newspaper that started up last year called The Story from the Westside
that focuses specifically on the part of Atlanta I live in. In fact,
their offices are walking distance from my house and are part of a
complex that includes an antique and bookstore mall as well as an art
gallery. Our function was actually in the art gallery, which serves
double duty as a really cool reception space. They are trying to have
all of this be a kind of focus point for a cultural rebirth in this
part of town. It seems to be working thus far. On the Story website
are two photos of significance to this blog: one photo of me (far
right) and my wife (back to camera)
talking to neighbors
and another of the food
table
(my deviled eggs are the round white dish in front of the
black haired lady.) The guy on the far left there runs a handyman
business and recently fixed our roof and rehanged a droopy gutter. Fun
in the neighborhood!

They have a monthly concert thing in that space, Kodac Harrison’s Kool
Korner, at which Sonia Tetlow played but I was out of town then. It is
a cool space and I hope their experiment works. I like the paper and
they do make an effort to be of service to the surrounding community.

In a little bit we’ll be going back to Augusta to visit my
mom. Nothing pressing or necessary, just to spend some time and sit
and talk or not talk. Just to be there.
