Happy Birthday!

It’s just the Cafe not THE restaurant- yes? And still ? Could not get a reservation at all – been trying since pre-reopening – Until a slot opens up unexpectedly:) Lucky!

Recalling back in the day we didn’t need a reservation and we just casually walked in – those days are over … Still the same Mesirow’s signature copper lighting enveloped us in its warm golden glow … The lighting in this special space is … magical. We felt as though we were welcomed back into an old friends hug – it’s lovely.

The place still continues to be down to earth and authentic… like the birthday guest we were celebrating. In this day and age of eliteism and egoism, fakeness, nothing is as comforting and healing to our souls as real fresh comfort foods with unpretentious sophistication.

Happy Birthday Riki !

May you be safe

May you be well

May you be at ease

May you be happy

May we be safe

May we be well

May we be at ease

May we be happy

Gratitude for this small gathering to happen at all on this special day when a special soul graced this earth to spend some time with us … each on our destined journey to that wonderous mysterious yonder.

May we all live in peace and health with joy and compassion in our hearts.

Sightings

This whimsical home has an elephant in their front yard – not just any elephant but with an umbrella ! and it’s sandwiched by Christmas trees and all lit up. Wondering what their private joke might be. Christmas has past but it’s ??? so many still have them light up this month of January. Whatever makes you happy and I am reminded

We make our own happiness!

by practicing it.

The above message- Courtesy of Kaiser hospital to which I had gone to take someone for a procedure two days in a row … I am at service and glad to be.

This is shown in the waiting area … afraid? depressed ? Grim? In Despair? Seems it’s saying- don’t be … at a hospital waiting room.

They do a good job …as their videos kept my attention from the negative rumination which is very human. And that we are.
