What Personal Space?

I had to do a double-take. There was a man walking right by my window, and I do mean right by; as in his shoulder was inches from my trailer.

I would like to say that this is a new thing, but it is not. I have had people walk right by my door as well. 

Those are understandable, as at those times, they are walking along the sidewalk. I also understand this time as well, as he was just walking to work. 

Let’s face it, my home is a vehicle, so people interact with it like it is a vehicle. He was walking right by it, as he was passing my trailer on the street side.

I have had only one person look in the trailer window at me, though that person was trying to get my attention. 

He wanted me to park my trailer in the lot of neighbouring business. I declined, as I don’t do that sort of thing, as I would feel obligated to be the night watchman, and I don’t want to be the night watchman.

I don’t have any personal space around my home, as I have no right to it, despite my desire for some. 

This is just a fact of life, and one that I have long since accepted as I live this Urban Nomadic lifestyle. 

One day soon I will have that land and have quite a lot of personal space. That day, is not today, but I will still get by, I will be okay, with or without personal space.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
