I've been off since the 1st and have enjoyed the relaxed self directed days. Sitting in the picture window at the Elk River Coffee Shop is an experience I could make a habit. I've found many such places to relax and ponder throughout my life. I seem to be gravitating toward the slower pace. I think my doctor finally has my medications balanced, LOL.
This window overlooks the north end of Main Street just off the town square. Fayetteville, TN - unlike its name sake in NC - is still a small town in size and disposition. Life is so slow, it's hard to understand how the local economy can support it. Yet it does with a hardware store on the square, a movie theater right out of "The Last Picture Show", a Merle Norman Cosmetics and a Electrolux (Authored Floor Care Service Provider Since 1924) mixed in with EdwardJones Investments, Rudy P's Trash & Treasures and a Town & County Realty & Auction.
On the Coffee Shop radio plays a song my Ex once choreographed a self reflecting dance to. Life, so full of crossed paths. Some understood and others not. This is just one of the values a nice Coffee Shop brings to one's life.
