At 7:30 this morning, I walked in to Coffeetopia on Mission Street for my daily cup o' joe. When I got to the counter, the big urn had just run out. "Just a minute" said my favorite barrista, deftly popping on a fresh batch in it's stainless steel container on the hot plate.
I meandered over to the condiments bar - this time the half & half was out.

written by our bodies
And when we dance we feel so good
Turning with our planet
Earth dancing, earth dancing
Turning with the wind

Our lives begin again…
