"One of the gifts of being a writer is that it gives you an excuse to do things, to go places and explore. Another is that writing motivates you to look closely at life, at life as it lurches by and tramps around." --Anne Lamott Posted on Facebook by Jade Walker
I like writing and drawing in coffee shops. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant too. It's not a family restaurant or diner where you have other people moving around you a lot. There are seldom loud noises, other than the coffee making machines. Something about coffee shops is relaxing to the spirit and yet I feel there is a standard to uphold. You can't be just a nobody when you sit at the window of a coffee shop with your latte. Cafe Clutch Artist Group Starbucks Artist Group
