Many mornings I ride my scooter through The Cloister thanks to the speed bumps that were removed and the pathway, along the curbside, through the existing speed bumps.
I am sometimes passed by the speedy walkers that flash by during their morning walk. There are always several dog walkers carrying their plastic doggy bags like all good neighbors should do.
And the morning coolness brings out the wonderful gardeners who treat us all with their beautiful flower gardens and well tended shrubbery.
A neighborhood priest living in The Cloister can sometimes be spotted as he walks down his driveway to pick up his morning newspaper.
Several mornings ago I greeted four nuns from the St Cecelia Convent, located in North Nashville, as they exited a car to visit a Cloister neighbor and mother of one of the nuns.
I hope everyone is as grateful as I am that we live in such a beautiful community.
