Transition Streets

Ashland is the kind of town where you can live for years without meeting the folks who live two houses down from you.  We've had the great pleasure to form close relationships with a couple of our neighbors, but for the most part, we have a respectful distance from the people on our street. We have exchanged pleasantries with some, talked with a few about kids and dogs, but there are many people on our short street whom we've never met. There seems to be an unspoken rule not to get too close. I mean, you do have to LIVE near these people. What if it didn't work out? Heck, they might even need you for something, which would be downright awful. This unfortunate status quo may be why the Transition Streets concept is so appealing to me.
