Christmas lights are still strung across my balcony. Last year, I wouldn’t have worried much about it because my balcony was actually rather drab compared to those of my neighbors, even with the lights. How things have changed. Frank and Sheila moved, for one thing. Their balcony looked like a freeway fireworks stand around July 3rd, all year around. There were several other neighbors who weren’t far behind them. Then I left the lights up in self defense. Now, I am the only balcony with any decoration at all. I am a lone survivor. I have to keep them lit.
