Love Story in Burlington, VT ...


It started the morning I decided to visit Muddy Waters (Coffee House) in Burlington, Vermont. I was told by the locals that if I was looking for a quiet place to write and enjoy a good cup of java, this was the place.

I entered into a few different level rooms containing booths, cozy benches and chairs. After ordering an Iced Machiatto, I settled into a nice corner bench adjacent to a bookshelf. It was quiet, the perfect seat to get some reading done.

My reason for spending a quiet morning here was to work through a few more chapters in The Artist's Way. (Julia Cameron's ~ Guide to Inspire Artists).

Upon looking around, I noticed that there was a small, rolled up piece of paper tucked away in the brick wall behind me. At first, I was not sure whether to take it out and read it, or not. Perhaps I have seen too many "Candid - Punked" like shows, and someone was watching my every move. Pushing these paranoid thoughts aside, I reached over, read it and I was elated that I did.

The note was written in someone else's handwriting ...

LOVE IS BOLD, LOVE IS BRAZEN
FIND LOVE
HAVE LOVE 
BE IN LOVE

Finding this note, was like finding buried treasure for me. I left Muddy Waters that day, feeling that the universe was speaking to me ... in a special way.

What have you come across lately that has made you feel this way?
