It’s the equal of a walk in the park---my 25 to 30 minute journey through the halls of the interconnected Porter Hills Village Center and Garden Apartments West and East, the perfect route during Michigan’s inclement weather. There is a hum of activity—purchases being made in the PX, the Store of Treasures or the Emporium, a table or two of Bridge or Porker, perhaps the artists’ group at work in the Activity Room, a history class in the Assembly room and a group of friends or family members having lunch in the Café. Everyone one smiles and nods a greeting as we navigate the traffic of walkers and Amigos. Or I stop to speak with acquaintances and the greeter at the desk in the apartments lobby. If I feel the need of a more meditative stroll, I wait until the lunch or pre-dinner hour or move up to the second or third floors where the halls are quiet. As I pick up my coat back outside the Meeting Hall, I smile at the sound and sight of the dear little children of our daycare center Generations. It may be snowing or raining outdoors, but “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood”!
