It was a beautiful day on my bike today, heading into neighborhoods off North Main Street (3B). My first visit was with a lawyer who is a partner in a local firm. He listened to my vision for lower class sizes, restoration of foreign languages in middle schools, and reaching out to seniors in their 90’s, including a few remaining WW2 vets as we support the mission of our Senior Center. We talked about listening to one another in the city council and city government. We realized we each have some wisdom and good ideas to impart. We talked about reaching across party lines and celebrating our seniors, veterans, teachers, school children, and health care providers. We talked about Highland Country Club and a healthy environment in Attleboro. We talked about affordable housing for all, beds for the homeless, and help for those afflicted by addictions. We talked about our dreams for Attleboro.
Yes, dreams are important. Without our dreams, we will never achieve them. I am a dreamer and a problem solver.
When I left his home he thanked me for stopping by and spending a few minutes. I thanked him as well. We really connected and listened to each other.
Yes, it was a beautiful day in our neighborhood. I topped it off by listening to Peter, Paul, and Mary on PBS tonight. Life is good!
It is also Jax’s birthday, who sends “On the Trail With Ty” to you. Happy Birthday, Jax!
