that I would be taking a leisurely walk through the Hard Bargain neighborhood as a homeowner, I wouldn’t have believed them. But the truth is, after being here twelve years, I don’t want to live anywhere else. Hard Bargain continues to satisfy me. Maybe the constant adventure of the community is enough to hold me. Like a moth to a flame, or a mosquito to my skin, I stay mesmerized. Our cozy spot is both an outpost for the lonely and the best place to find everything I need. Relationships have been formed that bring satisfaction to both giving and receiving.
