Yesterday I went downtown to scope out Strange Grounds Coffee on Broadway, where I will have a table at a craft fair. Oh la la. I had the best breakfast ever, sausage and egg with grilled onions, sour cream, and avocado! Low carb, too. and the coffee . . . just magnificent. I now have a new special spot for journaling out in the world, and plan on making this a frequent outing. Working in your journal in a creative atmosphere is really a treat, give yourself an early holiday gift and try it! "Grace emerges in the ebb and flow, not just the flow. The waning reveals a different kind of blessing than the waxing. But whether it's our time to ferment in the valley of shadows or rise up singing in the sun-splashed meadow, fresh power to transform ourselves is always on the way. Our suffering won't last, nor will our triumph. Without fail, life will deliver the creative energy we need to change into the new thing we must become." --Rob Brezsny

  1. Oh, I am so jealous :) This is reminiscent of both a Starbucks I used to go to, and a little coffee shop/eatery next to the prestigious hotel where my husband used to work in San Fransisco. I wish I could remember the name of the place... I loved it there.

    Last week I had some extra time, so I took my pen and journal to a Starbucks in order to sit for a bit and sketch, but this one was not set up for that, AND the only music they had going was Christmas music. Not the vibe I was going for. I took my coffee to go.
