Denver & Weimaraners

I can’t write lately. It feels as if, all the interesting words and expressions, have decided to join hands and jump out the edge of both of ears, out of my brain..they went! All they left me, was buckets of fog and confusion.

So I’ve decided, I am going to Denver to find ‘me’. Or at least, part of me. Fingers crossed it’s still there. (The part of me)

My love for adventure and solo travel, is taking me all the way to Colorado. Two wonderful Weimaraners will be my only companions. Murphy & Guinness.

Life has been busy lately and as usual for me, the excitement and preparation for a trip, always has to wait until the last minute! I realize this sounds strange.

What is more strange? I have no interest in visiting Boulder (at least this time)! I am a downtown junky. Not the high-rise buildings part usually! Rather the quieter but still very urbanized areas. Watching life unfolds, experiencing live music scenes, trying out delicious street food…etc etc

I will try to chronicle my Denver adventure.

Any advice, comment, recommendation about Denver?

I leave you with a bit of an amazing “Strumbellas” concert a couple nights ago.

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!

  1. Writing/Creativity is work.It’s hard work. There will come a time where it will try to take control. When that happens it is your turn to tell it who’s boss. Ask yourself one question: Who’s the boss?

    1. I wish ‘and don’t mind at all’ that my writing and creativity is always the boss. The best and most liberating ‘boss’ I’ve ever had. :))

  2. Hi! I’m in Denver! I know where you are at with writing, and it’s a maddening place to be, so I hope Denver provides you the inspiration you need. I’m not sure if you are still here, but I can give you some good spots to go to, either to write or just to explore. Let me know and don’t lose hope, your words will find you!

    1. Hello Gypsy, Thank you for your warm words of writing encouragement! I truly appreciate them! I would love to know some good spots to explore. Writing is like a ghost to me lately! I think I just felt it taking a seat on a bench beside me, but then as soon as I look, it’s gone.
      I’m in Denver last week of this month.

      1. Oops, didn’t mean to send. Okay, my favorite coffee shops: bicycle cafe and link coffee bar. There are tons more with cool vibes, but the can be pretentious and annoying. I also love the Starbucks on 2nd in Cherry Creek, which I’m ashamed to admit. But they have a great outside patio which stays pretty cool except for mid afternoon. Rino district is a fun, artsy neighborhood where I work. I’m always at ink coffee shop in the early a.m mainly Because it’s super close to work, laid back vibe, music conducive to writing/working and they make a great americano!! The highlands has tons of gems, I just haven’t been there for a while. But the Bookbar on Tennyson is a fantastic place to write, read and indulge in a glass of wine if you so choose. 🙂 and finally, the place I pretty much live is Tattered Cover on Colfax. Amazing locally owned bookstore that used to be an old theatre. That’s in my hood, so I’m partial, but it’s a Denver gem, for sure!! I hope that helps and please reach out if you need anymore tips or anything at all while your here!

      2. Wow thank you thank you Brook! All sound amazing! You are getting me excited about my visit.

        I cannot wait to visit The Bookbar. And Tattered Cover sounds like The place for me for sure!
        I will be spending a lot of time in Berkeley. I love discovering on foot and with the dogs I will be doing a lot of walking.
        Thank you again. Who knows maybe I’ll see you there ☺️
