A little java and a lot of coffee


I spent a lovely afternoon with my friend Kathy; sketching and being quiet. Nothing could have been more perfect. You see, friends don’t necessarily have to speak to enjoy a common experience.

Sometimes, a real friend sits, listens and nods. That’s all it takes.

We met at Java, a local coffee shop near my house. Even the real name is something newer, I hold fast to the old and refuse to give it up. It is a neighborhood coffee shop that rarely entertains hipsters. That’s a good thing in itself. What is does promote is excellent organic coffees and superior music. Leonard Cohen was playing when I looked up, then The Zombies. I was on fire.

A perfect day to start conversation without words.
