Sometimes it's nice to just stop for a minute, sit, breathe and look around. I found myself in Jaffa with a dear and special friend, where we went to her favourite pretty café for coffee and pomegranate juice. She was just back from a glorious wedding in Florence, and excited about a new writing project based on her favourite topic -- love stories!  We had fun talking at, and over, each other about the things we saw, people we spoke to and the things we did. But for that hour after all the travel and whirligig, we were happiest just sitting together, sharing drinks and appreciating being still and in one familiar place.
