Dedicated to the owner of the Blue Moon restaurant in downtown York, Pa. He knew what he wanted.
On my quest to choose a future career, I stumbled upon a dream I had locked away: shop owner.
The shop I long to run will be similar to what one would see in Greenwich Village in the 1960s. Furniture will be used, vintage and unique. Used records will be sold and an array of musical genres will always be heard in the atmosphere. Coffee, tea, and small desserts will be available to customers. I haven’t decided whether a smoking section will be present. I have friends who smoke. I’m not partial to the act, but I’m not an advocate against it. Perhaps an outside area will allow such a feature.
Perhaps a small newspaper can be distributed there, or some type of local magazine.
Traveling and local musicians, as well as amateurs, will be encouraged to perform. The shop will have small setting acoustics for folk and blues, jazz and mood music. Poetry, another love of mine, will be spoken. Art will also be featured as a way for local artists to show their talent.
I have a vision of appeal for the bohemian district.
The dream is to allow this generation to experience a past generation, a different time…A time when love and peace were encouraged by many, and the overall way of life was nothing like it is now.
Ahhh…the smell of coffee beans fills the air…
