This evening I find myself working in a coffee shop. Just me and my notebook computer and Wifi and some random strangers.
You’ve probably been there too. There is something oddly random about it. People come and go, and other folks’ life plays out before you in little snippets.
Mostly I focus on what I’m working on, but every once in a while I notice the sweet young couple on their first date, an old man wandering around looking a little sad and lost, the students hunched over their laptop computers, intent on making the next deadline.
I am not sure whether these various events are helpful to my process or not, as I try to get my own work done. But whatever it is, I’m enjoying the vibe.
