It's a new year! No doubt by now the joy and cheer of the Holiday season have faded and left you facing the harsh realities of January. It is Winter. Your mailbox is full of tax documents and gym membership spam. Several weeks back at work have left your resolutions for 2015 seeming feeble and unattainable.
DO NOT DESPAIR! Remember that we live in a world in which there are Saturdays, and coffee, and handsome sweaters of exceptional comfort! There is poetry! Our friends at Sola Coffee understand this, and have arranged for a celebration of all things awesome at a special ad-hoc Pop-up Market on the first Saturday in February. I'll be there typing, alongside several other local vendors whose wares will help reinvigorate you in this soggy, cold season.
This market is also timed to conveniently coincide with a certain February holiday which you may or may not be prepared to celebrate with someone special to you. I would be glad to type a poem for your Valentine on the topic of love, but I'd like to warn you up-front that I plan to make any love poems as weird as possible, so if you're looking for gooey sentiment you may want to augment your gift with a copy of The Notebook or a personalized dedication from Delilah.
As always, the earlier you catch me the fresher I'll be. I tend to get busy around lunchtime at these events, so come early and get your request in so I can work on it while you shop around and enjoy a coffee!
