Reading Glasses

Stopped by the Bard, a favorite coffee stop on Middle Street, the other day. Is everything I do connected in some way to writing? A cup of joe and a crossword puzzle were my table mates, seeing that Paul's schedule made a meeting here with me impossible. I enjoy watching the hustle and bustle of early arriving office workers, stopping by for an early morning pick-me-up and making plans for the afternoon and evening. It's 8F above this morning. I'm happier on this side of the window. That's for sure!

  4. I've made some fine friends in St. Paul at a neighborhood cafe...and, it is indeed conducive to writing.

  5. Beautiful shot, and the post says a lot about you. My husband goes out for coffee every morning and I am sure he would enjoy sitting at that table with you.

  9. I love coffee
    But not tea
    Coffee shops are
    Right for me
    Crosswords were
    My main forte
    But now my mind
    Has slipped away!

    Old age, ya know!

  10. Couldn't live without a good coffee shop in the area. Although they are noisy I seem to get a lot of reading done there. -- barbara

  11. I love this post. The glasses on the newspaper, the street scene, and your post about getting the day started and watching the wheels turn outside. Great mood.

  12. My kind of place. I like coffee shops to read the paper, check on blogs, meet friends, people watch and . . . drink coffee. Yours looks like a very pleasant coffee shop, captured well.

  13. Aren't you glad --as you sit and watch the office workers coming and going---that you don't have to do that now?????? I love my retirement --and wouldn't trade it for anything... We even took a nap this afternoon... ha ha

  14. Yep, my husband goes out for coffee each morning, too, and likes his newspaper . . . and doesn't like anyone yakking at him while he reads it.

  15. Nicely composed and the glasses are stylin'. Did you finish the crossword? Looks like you were just about to start.

  17. Some relaxing reading at a coffee place is not bad at all, eh? :)
    God bless you!
