coffee house




"No man is an island...comfort came against my will," he sings.




It's a coffee house, opened only by reservation. You can't just stop by because she has a life. This morning that life includes a paid corporate gig after a ten year drought.

"I'm worried."

"You're gonna be fine. Why would you worry?"

"It's not that I can't do the work. I can do the work. It's just doing it when they want me to, where they want me to."

"Same rules will apply. Life is compromise."



Today I am grateful for tiny cups and saucers, for all the chairs around the house.
Especially those in front of the fire.

I have a secret that I will tell you here. And it's going to sound all pitiful but it's not.

I'm much less impressive than you can imagine. I'm not the best conversationalist. I ramble the most absurd things. Sometimes I think writing is some type of sorting for me. Slow, remember. And I don't necessarily consider myself a kind person.


But you seem incredibly kind. I love that you are here. And I don't necessarily know if I fear meeting you or fear the disappointment on your face. Some say listen to your gut and some say face your fear. Tear down walls or build them up. What I do know is that you made me consider how meek feels. (could you get vulnerability added to the definition?)

If we were to meet someday, I'm sure I would be devastated by the look of disappointment on your face. If you truly don't know my identity by now I'm sure I have played this anonymous game to well. As for vulnerability, it's my life story. Love has always been my weakness, the wrong one, not enough, to much and losing. I've lost good friends and family that never knew how I loved them or why. Lost love has hardened me over the years which makes me vulnerable, the fear of loving and losing I guess. It's bad that I can't tell the ones that aren't with us any longer how I feel, even worse I can't tell some of the ones still here.
