Sitting here at the Blue Dot Cafe & Coffee Bar in Alameda, CA relishing in the busyness of life. A few people in line getting their morning scone and coffee before heading out to work. The music playing is reminiscent of the 70’s with For What It’s Worth by Buffalo Springfield. Parents bringing their children in for a bit of breakfast like maybe a Scrambled Egg Sandwich or a French Toast Strata. Pairs just awakened sit down to a new day to share an espresso and Poached Eggs & Toast with Chicken Apple Sausage. It’s the cashier/waitress here that’s special, though. She has learned the art of communicating & tolerance and by her eye contact, loves what she does; loves being around people. She lives to serve. You can feel it. A good vibration. People are smiling here.
This invokes within me the continued excitement of being around others, helping others. I think the secret of life and happiness is just that-helping. It’s a simple word. Find what you like to do and help others with those skills.
As far as the Blue Dot Cafe & Coffee Bar…I wish them the best in their new found business adventure. I think they are off to a great start!
