I was very happy to see that my bike shop finally got their adjacent coffee shop open. From the outside, it looks like a spacious, low key place where I can write and grade. I didn't have time to lock up and go in, but I'll let you know.
I look forward to little openings in my city, new spaces--clean, well-lighted places where a girl can sit among her fellow humans and maybe channel something worth putting on the page.
Something to look forward to and meditate on in the face of a possible bad outcome in the presidential election AND a possible "perfect storm" that may be hitting my city.
