Some days you need to say yes to the mug.
Leave the to-go cup, and come be.
Choose the couch instead of the table.
Choose the hot cocoa instead of the coffee.
Pet the stranger’s dog when they aren’t looking.
Watch the rhythm of bodies moving in and out of the shop.
Feel the warmth of the sun on your back.
Sneak in snippets of conversations around you.
Learn about the people in your world.
Choose the mug and come be.
