In the cold, frosty air of this December day, we bundled up in our jackets and hats this morning and gathered at the local Starbucks on Clearwater and highway 395 here in Kennewick, WA. The place was packed with people taking a break, or a second coffee, before a busy day of shopping; others were reading books and newspapers; some were studying; and still others just chatting and enjoying their favorite flavors.
We thought we might have to find somewhere else to go, but soon three chairs opened, then a fourth and then there we were, the four of us facing each other in the middle of the room. Fortunately, people in coffee shops move rather slowly, but when they do get up and leave, we've learned to just find someone else to use as a model to complete whatever character we were working on when they left.
