Denial Isn't a River in Egypt.

The grim news left the world more beat up than yesterday.

It was time to remember the most beautiful harbor in the world.

And have a cup of coffee with Mimi at one of our favorite stores for a brief reprieve from fear and worry, except perhaps that the curtains wouldn't work out and require a trip to return things.  Which meant maybe more shopping.

Several cups and many hours later, now with a heavy bag but a lighter heart, the harbor felt like Florence's ghost reminding me a little denial was not a bad thing.  And she was right.  When there wasn't enough bucks for a vacation or a flight off the planet, all you needed was a hearty cup of coffee, some shopping and the company of a good friend.
