Welcome to Talkin’ About Thursdays! Today we’re talking about your favorite place to relax.
One of my favorite places to relax might seem like an unlikely spot–an old chair with a worn table in front of it…
But let me tell you a little bit about this chair.
It sits in a quiet corner of one of my favorite coffee shops.
The coffee shop is one of those places where people know your name and ask how you’re doing when you walk in.
On cold days, the fireplace warms the room. And around Christmastime, carols play in the background.
The smells of coffee and cinnamon and spice fill the air.
This is the chair I often write in, the sun shining through the window and warming my shoulders as I type.
This is the chair from which I’ve seen many things that have touched my heart, too… a father and daughter meeting for breakfast, friends having coffee together after not seeing each other for a long time, a teenager pouring her heart out to her mom.
This is the chair I finished writing my middle grade novel in, free from the distractions of the phone or the laundry or the to-do list that always seem to beckon me when I’m at home.
And sitting in this chair,
in this corner of the coffee shop,
writing to my heart’s content…
is what I call relaxing. :)
