A lovely little afternoon of coffee and chat

We just got in from one of those lovely little afternoons of coffee and chat. On saturday, Sharon asked me at the wheelchair football if I wanted to meet today in the park. Naturally I accepted her invitation. That place has now very much become my first port of call for my social life: If I want to meet my friends somewhere, the cafe in the park is the first place I suggest. Today I spent a veery pleasant couple of hours there, alone at first, but then joined by Sharon, and then Lyn.

It was good to see her, and I think she was as appreciative of the brew as I was. We seem to share political views, so it was good to get her perspective on this and that. She seems to be as pessimistic (read: objective) as most reasonably well-informed people these days. We agreed that the outlook for the world right now seems rather bleak. Nevertheless, it was quite a cheerful chat, full of laughter and friendship.

When it was over, Lyn and I, both in our powerchairs, went to do a bit of shopping and then rolled back through the park. The city seemed at peace. I am so lucky to live the life I do, full of so many good friends and wonderful people. Afternoons like this make me feel warm and secure. Politics might be screwy right now, but it's nothing that a good chat over a cup of coffee can't put right.
