what an awesome lj community i just found!
i've been an everyday solstice regular for the last year and a half or so and i'm friends with many of the baristas and on first-name, drink-memorized basis [tall caramel latte] with many of the rest. so i've probably seen all of you sometime and you've probably seen me. please comment, tell me who you are, how long you've been going to solstice, something about yourself...
i'll start. i'm nahzi. i'm 19, been solstice-ing for a year and a half, i'm obsessed with the color pink, i'm a pre-med at uw...
your turn. <3
My dearest Solstice,
Please forgive me for neglecting you lately. I hope that you don't take my absence to heart. I simply haven't been able to get into town much lately, I'm so busy. I miss you terribly and look forward to once again resting in your comforting embrace, though I don't know when that will be. Please don't forget me.
I remain yours, faithfully,
Someone be my friend and IM me ;) that sounds like a GREAT idea! =) Then maybe we can get coffee and be coffee pals! hehe
A disappointed note to Solstice:
You let me down today. Is it because I've been neglecting you? Cafe Allegro was open and buzzing. Why can't you be more like Cafe Allegro? Hmm? And how do you plan to make it up to me? Or do you? Well... I still love you, I just need some time to think, okay?
Solstice was sweet cocoa refuge today from my blustery country blackout. The afternoon baristas are angels, and always make me smile. Today they did it not just with kindness but also by playing The Church:
... Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty,
... Some of the breath fades with the light.
... I think about this loveless fascination,
... Under the Milky Way tonight.
At least I think that's what they're singing. But really I just dug it for the synth-bagpipe solo and the 12-string. Anyway, that tune goes so well with cocoa, paper, and pencil. I eavesdropped on an argument over photosynthesis and felt inspired.
