Bruegger’s Bagels – Cotswold

January 26, 2009

I am sitting in Bruegger’s Bagel in Cotswold because Julia’s, my usual haunt was slam full.  I guess the word is out.  Julia’s now promotes itself as a used bookstore with a cafe rather than a coffee house with a selection of used books.  It’s getting noisy in here.  I should have brought my Ipod.

Today is a bright blue day in Charlotte.  Yesterday could only be described as blustery.  A sad freak accident occured when a tree toppled across a road, hitting a moving car, crushing the car and killing the woman driver.  You just never know.

Tonight is the January meeting of my critique group.  We haven’t met since early December and I am eager to see my writing buddies again. 

Last week I spent 3 days working at my church packing boxes of peanut butter, canned food and bottled water.  It was loaded on pallets and trucked to Norfolk, VA where it was loaded onto a Navy ship and shipped to Haiti.  We sent 44,000 pounds of food and collected $25,000 to buy medical supplies and tents.  I wonder where it is today?  I don’t want to see another jar of peanut butter for a few days.

Our pastor’s wife was in port-au-prince when the earth quake struck.  She was safe and is back in Charlotte now but she has a very powerful story to tell.
