Lately, I’ve noticed a tightening of the battle lines around here. When Archer and I walk every morning, ensuring his reputation as a frequent marker remains intact, I can tell at a glance which side everyone is on. It’s right there on the edge of their yard.

I’m talking about the battle for the very soul of our Canyon Lake community. A fight where each side shows their loyalty through colors proudly displayed every day. It’s a wrestling match for the hearts, minds and debris of our lives and if you’ve ever been here, then in no time you know full well a war is underway on every street in our neighborhood.

Winter Prosapio is a writer, a wife, and a working mom of two girls, two cats, and one ridiculously enthusiastic terrier mix.
