A December moment
May your days be merry and bright!
Tao, is a baker of fine cakes.
Tao, opened a cafe.
Tao invited friends and family for his opening today.
Part of the reason Tao opened the cafe, is as a place to put his excess stuff.
The extra living room sets.
The cookbooks and art prints.
Ephemera from his travels, like the menu from Quo Vadis, his favourite restaurant in London.
Sitting in Tao’s cafe is sitting in a friends living room, with a good slice of cake and coffee.
I rocked my baby to sleep to the sound of moon river playing in the background. It was such a spacious moment, realizations of past dreams and an expansive future met in a moment. It was a December moment.
I wept. My wife wept. My baby slept.
“Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end
Waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Moon river and me”
