This pic was snapped on my Iphone during one of the last times that my daughter and I had coffee and cookies at our local coffee house...LaLa Java. LaLa is no more in our town (they moved to a neighboring town but it is not the same as walking down). In it's place, a new super grocery store is going up, the concrete walls look quite sturdy.
So that is progress....a new something that already exists, in spades, and the demolition of something unique and neighborly. We would sit at our table, underneath the magnetic board and create poetry and talk about life. This is our last line in a place that meant something to us all.
