To have and to hold

In a co-op, you don’t own land, you own shares in a corporation that owns the land under a big building. So even though you “own” an apartment, you really own a piece of paper with a number of shares printed on it.

So this, which arrived last week, of course choked me up.


Now I just need to mow my land.
