“Feed Your Hunger. Quench Your Thirst.”

I found out my coffee shop will be closing its doors for good on November 1.  Small businesses struggle all across the country, but our town eats them for snacks.  Haven limped along for almost three years, and even though it had faithful customers, it operated at a loss the entire time.  The end was inevitable.

Since my depression is treacherous at present, I can’t allow myself to consider the implications.  November first is a lifetime away.  No need now to mourn or worry about how I’ll spend my mornings.  Instead I comfort myself the way I have over the last three years—sitting in the sunshine at “my” table with a bit of breakfast, chatting with the other regulars, and writing.  Always writing.

    I read this on Facebook and meant to say something the other day… Hopefully, something is just around the corner that will come close to meeting the need… sigh.

    Dear Sandy Sue, this might be the occasion when holding on to that adage–when a door closes, a window opens–is necessary. Peace.

    Even when I’ve been away from the computer for a couple of weeks, I still look to read only a few blogger friends at first chance. The others I generally have to “mark as read” because I do not have the time to go through hundreds of posts. I enjoy catching up on your posts. I love your writing Sandy… it is truly a gift to all of us. Don’t ever close shop… your writing is inspirational and therapeutic!
