I love being out side and now that the weather is nice I try to spend as much time out as I can. I started walking this morning and before long, I was at my Starbucks. It is almost 5 miles from my house. I can’t believe I walked that far. But the sun was shinning and I was in the mood to be out. It is in a wonderful spot. I get to watch all the shoppers and people running from here and there. I often wish there was a book store around here.
We have almost left the art of reading an actual book behind. I don’t know if that is good or bad…..it does save a lot of trees.
Blogging has become one of favorite pastimes. I have so much going on in my head sometimes and this is a wonderful outlet for my thoughts. Plus, I get to hear back from others and what they think. I am always amazed how many people think as I do about things. This thing called the internet has given people like me a way to connect to people I would never have the time to meet, moreover, they don’t live in the same state I live in.
While walking today, I had so many thoughts about things around me. One thing I noticed, we don’t have many flowers here. It is sad, when I think of the South, I think of bright colors. Something you don’t get int he North too much. I use to visit New York city a lot this time of year but as you may know, there isn’t a lot of color. There are things I miss about there. The fast pace of life, all the wonderful shops. I use to love this one place where I would go and have coffee. Cafe Lalo. I was just about the best spot on a Saturday night. I also loved to shop at Zabars. They sold gourmet and kosher foods. There are so many things I miss but those two come to mind.
Funny how just sitting in a coffee shop can bring up so many wonderful memories.
