How big is your neighborhood?

When we're very young, our neighborhood circle is small. It may be only as large as our own home and a house or two on either side. The first day at school widens that circle tremendously. There are a lot of different experiences that extend our concept of the world in which we live.

Berlin, Johannesburg, Bogota, Bombay, might all have remained just names had it not been for the people I've met who live in those cities. One friend's death in a war zone overseas gave pungent meaning to that part of the world for me. Another friend from another country has had a lasting influence I didn't anticipate.
