I almost missed my chance to take photos of our backyard tree in bloom; by the time I got home today, nearly all the flowers had been replaced by bright green leaves.
This morning, I stopped downtown at the coffee shop where I used to work to redesign their chalkboard menu in exchange for some free drinks and a gift card. The whole thing still feels like a family operation and I’m just one of the kids. Seriously, that place was so good to me. I had no idea what I wanted out of life, I had no friends, and I knew nothing about Charlottesville, but they took me in and made me feel at home in this town, and in my own skin. While working on the menu today, I eavesdropped on a very important conversation between a local author and a production team that wants to buy the rights to adapt his newest book into a film set in India!
