Once, when I was talking to Jason, Jeremy's brother, Jason said, "You sound like you're related."
But that's how it is there: the co-owners of The Espresso Garden make people feel at home.
And someone stepped in today and said it was an oasis from the street, "Even the fence, and the fountain and the slope all leading away" from that chaos out there--it's our little paradise.
Today someone took one of the flower paintings home. It was hard to say goodbye, but I gave it a hug and knew it had found a good home. Sometimes it's hard to let go.
