We Are Part of a Neighborhood
The opening of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood is slow. Xylophone and harp form the opening notes and then a blinking yellow traffic light leading into Mr. Roger’s cardigan and sneakers. It had a way of lulling you. Everything else can be so loud and fast that sometimes we don’t know what to do with something that is soft and slow. The result is that we miss a lot of important things, most important of all, we miss seeing the people of our neighborhood.
