GOLIGHTLY CAFE



















Photo by S. Auberle

First look at Mimi's cafe. You will notice it's dark,
though brightly lit inside, behind that mysterious
green door. From the mists of my childhood I
remember a song called Green Door. The only
line I can recall is "green door, what's that secret
you're keeping?" The cafe is a place of secrets
and a place of joys. It's always dreamtime there.
And it's always open, waiting for you.

Step through that green door and it's where you
go when you sit on top of a mountain, or walk a
wild beach, leaping out of the way of oncoming waves.
It's where you look at the Milky Way, or hold a warm,
sleeping baby on your heart. Where you listen to
Handel's Hallelujah Chorus or watch the Nutcracker
for the twentieth time. Christmas mornings and
Easter dawns are always happening behind that
door. And yes, behind that door, you're always
falling in love--with the world--and with yourself.
