To some of you this is going to sound lame. But, on this Memorial Day, I happen to have work off, and I find myself sitting in a coffee shop on South Broadway in Denver. I am across from a woman in her mid-twenties who is completely engrossed in her work, and may or may not know how she feels about the fact that I chose to occupy the seat across from her. These coffee snobs, I can tell, are totally used to occupying an entire booth at a time all to themselves, but I happen to be intent on making friends and I find that I never have been concerned with social norms. Breaking them often leads to opportunity.
There it is folks! I am living one of my dreams as a blogger. It is a rainy day, I am sitting in a tiny coffee shop with free wifi, and all sorts of eclectic decor on the walls. The dim lighting is cozy and not too much for my eyes. The people are friendly and most of them are here for the same purpose: to work, to enjoy the quiet, and to find some inspiration. The rain outside is just the icing on the cake. It makes things feel slower-paced and less rushed to get somewhere. The rain reminds me to sort of chill out if you will.
This is important because I thought it would take so long to get here. Up until now I have been writing blog posts on my iPhone, straining my thumbs to faintness. Since 2019 I have dreaming of the day that I would be able to pack up my pc and go sit for hours in a coffee shop. I figured I would meet like-minded people along the road, and while that has yet to happen, I know it is coming.
Thank you Lord for a brother who considers my needs and meets them.
