Norwood is happening

It's a Saturday, like most Saturday's around 1, I take a ride on my bike to drop off the documentaries I had during the week.I took a longer ride to look around to see the edges of Norwood. For the ride was pleasant today, people were walking, getting on the bus, running/jogging, walking there dogs. A day of sun and moments to take advantage of. Before long the cool breeze will nip our nose and the sweaters will come out. I got a cone of ice cream from the Norwood Creamery before it closes for the summer. Which was the first time I have gotten to go there. I rode around the Northern parts of Norwood, through the residents and headed back home past the construction for the new Kroger's to be built and found my way back to base camp. aka Home.
I am proud to call Norwood my home. Norwood is a city inside a city if need to known to others. For the past 3 years I have lived in Norwood and learned to know folks around of the residents around St. Elizabeth. Becoming more and more familiar to the people and finding myself comfortable enough to call them my friends. Community is important to me and being at a place that provides a comfortably living is as well.
I am amazed at what I have experienced with Norwood. From starting off in building of a community of friends, and making new friends. I continue to enjoy what Norwood keeps providing me. A central location where I can reach most places at ease from, and where change keeps coming. I feel as many others are being drawn to this flame.
I am excited and looking forward to the future of Norwood as I keep finding my roots keep digging here.For if you look around lately you will know what I am talking about. I don't know enough more than what I see and read with my eyes. But it appears Norwood is growing and doing great things as far as community. I hope I can give back what I have received.
