Change has been the constant in my life lately. Moving back to Colorado, selling our house, old friends found, new schools, new boss and many other things at work that I shouldn't discuss. In the next month I will be in Colorado, New York and Las Vegas at some point and we are still trying to find ways to fit more in. I'm even using a new bike and a new website. All of this has been very good, but I wouldn't exactly call it stable and I think that most of my friends would tell you that change and I don't have a history of getting along too well.
So today, after I dropped K off at school, I decided to visit an old haunt of mine. Caffe Sole was pretty much my home away from home office before we moved. I would drop K off and head over here for my morning coffee, snack and free wifi. A couple of things would be pretty consistant: 1. There is a guy there in the mornings that is very outspoken. 2. At least once a week there was a group of 5 men that would gather and chat for the better part of the day.
Today I took K to school and decided to go see how Sole was holding up. I walk up, same guy outside. I walk in, same menu, same 5 guys chatting quietly. It was as if I never left. Quiet and comfortable, I settled into my surroundings and worked the afternoon away.
I try to go with the changes that life brings, but it's the things that don't change that make me comfortable. Time to go back to the school, til next time.
