Behind the dance studio, there is this alley. It can lead you around our small downtown the back way. Up ahead, a right turn, then left turn would take you to a children's bookstore. If instead you took two left turns, you would come to a bicycle shop. But, if you pivot to your right from this spot, a few steps lead you to the back deck of a local coffee shop. It was a little less than a year ago that friends at dance introduced me to this place. Turns out they have great tea, hot or iced, and Italian soda in a plethora of flavors. Also, the cozy atmosphere and same people at the counter give it a hospitable feeling. Add a few friends, and it's a favorite place to go. I always did like alleys, but it's these special, quiet spots that make them so mysteriously magnetic.
