Coffee to Perfection and Space to Write
at Walden’s Coffee House
When the words aren’t exactly flowing like I would like them to, I grab my journal and often times my laptop and head down the street to Walden’s. What I like about it is the familiar faces and Mandy remembers my favorite coffee order, “Vanilla, non-fat, latte coming right up.” The noise of friendly chatter surrounds me and my pen drives itself across the page. In the beginning it sounds, like nothing much before writer’s block falls away and an energetic current trails along an empty page like magic. I have to tell you my friend, inspiration travels around in a great cup of coffee, rhythmic sounds of grinding machines, slurping steamers, and clanging metal spoons. Walden’s creates music in my bones and dialogue on a page.
