When we lived in Springfield I knew the neighbors that immediately bordered our property but that's about it. In the city we had several neighbors that we didn't know the names of that slept in bed less than a 100 yards from our own. We didn't know what they did for a living, the names of their children or anything else more significant than their address and perhaps what kind of car they drive.
With less than 60 days into living on the farm our closest neighbors are several hundred yards away but we've already developed personal relationships with dozens of people.
As I drive through town on the way home, each car that I pass greets me with a wave that I politely return.
