By | August 10th, 2018|art, bars and restaurants, daily life, friends|

Lulu Cafe and Gallery is a lovely place to meet with friends on a lovely winter evening. Three glasses of Tempranillo and a delicious meal marinated chicken Maryland later and it is with a certain spring in my step that I meet the 9:07 train to Keon Park. Words are what have been missing in [...]

It was a bit of a new experience to go shopping with a friend. It is so interesting how conversation flows in completely different ways with the stimulation of browsing lovely things. It was quite a novel experience. To add to this, is that amazing warmth that grows between two people who are drinking red [...]

By | May 6th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends|

Smith Street is a lovely place to people watch on a Sunday afternoon and watch the world go by.

It fills my soul with the substance that [...]
