As time went on, the back was not mowed as often, and I noticed that an area in the front was not being mowed either. That was because the husband had decided that he liked to watch the tall grass sway in the wind as he looked out his front window. The wife, wanting to keep things neater, would go out and surreptitiously pull some of this grass, hoping that this new area would not become overgrown like the back. It went along this way for a couple of years until she gave up and decided to enjoy the tall, swaying grass also.

Sometimes it takes a while, but there is usually a compromise to be found in all situations. My neighbor's yard is a friendly reminder of that for me.
