Went for coffee today in a wee place round the corner from my flat that I’d really wanted to try, Vienna. It was lovely…

Still reading Human Traces, really enjoying it. Here’s a wee quote I treasure:

“But, Madame, tell me one thing. Why is it that you need to be reassured? If I was like you I would wake up every day and thank God for everything he has given me. I would not need to be told every day how fortunate I was. I would still remember from the day before!”

(Guillaume, to Sonia, p. 68)

    Ahhh Emma,

    That coffee shop looks amazing, we have very few quality ones here in Mexico – cept for Stabucks, but when it takes you nearly an hour to get to it, it kinda puts the dampners on it! You sound like your doing well, and we’ll keep an eye on your travels! God Bless, Jonny & Julie

    Jonny, great to hear from you guys. Will be keeping an eye on what you’re up to! It’s one of the things I love about living in the city, and in the West… I get to feed my caffine addiction easily. Bless you guys in Mexico.
