This whole living in the moment and being here now way of thinking, is a great way to live. It’s a great way to be.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but a lot of my stories tend to be about that, but at the same token, they become a part of the past. They become nostalgic, and then there’s the question, am I holding onto the past? Lots of questions and thinking that can drive one crazy and cause anxiety.
It can also be a source of rebirth, rejuvenation, and a restart…
It’s summertime, which means being outside as much as possible, enjoying company, enjoying food and drink, and enjoying everything under the sun. And then enjoying everything else under the sun…
Fells Point has been good to me for so many years. In a little while I can say a couple of decades. Oh my goodness, feels funny when you say it like that.
My life (and I’m sure many can say the same) has been transformed in the last year. The amount of life changes in succession might be too much for one person to handle. But there’s that silly line about how life only gives you so much. It’s true, or many of us would’ve gone off the deep end. And that’s still an arguable point.
Lately I’ve been finding more and more peace in the places that have brought happiness to me over the course of my life. Sometimes unplanned, sometimes with a mission to be there, yet the stops in and along the way still being spontaneous. Life an be good. It can be great actually.
Many year later, many things change, but there’s the constants. I feel like I’ve said this before, and then said this before, and then…
Pitango Gelato (locations can be found here) has been one of those more recent staples of Fells Point that has the sense of local, sense of community, and a sense of pride.
They’ve expanded and evolved with the times, like many places have.
With their new cafe in an ideal spot by the water, it’s in tune with everything right about the neighborhood.
I’ll get back to the iced teas soon, but this is about peace no matter what you’re doing, and what you’re sipping on. I had a friend join me, and I had a cup of their White Monkey, which was in their selection of loose teas. Perfect for now, perfect for whenever is how I look at it.
I love white tea. I don’t delve into it enough. That’s going to change.
Finding a place outside is ideal. Having a view of the water and the downtown shoppes, restaurants, and local flavor warms my heart from end to end. I love it so much.
I don’t have much else to say. This is one of those posts where I feel like I’ve said so much of this before, and I don’t know where we go from here. I tend to say that a lot as well.
What I do know this I’m fully on board with summer, and there’s so much left to celebrate and embrace. With that I don’t bid adieu or anything like that. I will say that I have some exciting things in mind in the coming weeks, without really having any idea what they are. I shouldn’t live too far in the future. It’s about this current moment in life, and all the other way too profound stuff, that I would like to cut out, but that’s not me.
If you’re in the neighborhood, I would highly recommend a visit. I have friends that often come back to the Fells Point, specifically for their gelato, and now the cafe.
It’a journey worth taking..
Peace be with you…
