I will confess I did not take this photo, my beautiful daughter did, but it is of me. It was taken on a recent Saturday morning when my husband and I were visiting our daughter at college. My husband had gone out cross country skiing that morning, so Mallory and I decided to go to her favorite coffee shop for breakfast. Even though we talk on the phone daily nothing is better than face to face conversation.
What I love about what she has captured here is the essence of who I am becoming, a writer. In January I started a series on my blog called The Coffee Shop Chronicles, each week I either visit my favorite coffee shop or another local one and write about what is happening in the coffee shop. In my favorite coffee shop there are a lot of regulars so they have developed into a weekly cast of characters. Through this series and the weekly practice of writing I am uncovering a true joy, writing. I have always enjoyed writing but now I can see possibilities for the future, maybe even, dare I say it, a book.
