Home Away from Home

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I forget how grounding a favorite place can be. It should come to as no shock to anyone that Bard Coffee has become my home away from home. Since it opened, I would say that I’ve averaged about an hour a day (at least) sitting, drinking coffee, and holding court for folks that stop in to visit. That is, up until this week. 

For whatever reasons, probably mostly because I’ve needed some serious sleep, my time spent at Bard has been minimal this week. Mostly a grab and go before work, with me missing one day completely. I had either forgotten, or hadn’t even realized, how good this place is for my psyche. Everything about it, but especially the people, feels like home every time I come in. 

Tip of the day: When you find a place that is yours, make sure you hit it up as often as humanly possible. If you do, it can make your day. If you don’t, you probably won’t notice until you go back, but you will definitely notice.


  1. Amen! I went for a walk on the beach this morning to get myself calm and centered before hitting the Orchard. Every time I go I forget how much I need the beach on a regular basis. Thanks for the reminder. Good seeing you the other day; maybe I’ll find you at Bard sometime….
