I walk about two and a half miles to get what I call “into town,” where the town offices and the library and the Congregational church and assorted places of commerce are located. Up until recently, this was my favorite destination in town, a blissful little spot that took the idea of a coffee shop and made it into my living-room-away-from-home. The shop recently closed down for good. I still walk into town for very practical reasons like going to the post office or paying my property taxes. I sure do miss my coffee stop, though.
