The Laden Table

I am so honored and flattered. Nicola, a reader from the UK who I've corresponded with over the years, has told me: "I have just opened my new cafe/gallery called The Laden Table.... inspired by The Kindness of Strangers."

This is no ordinary cafe. In addition to amazing food, especially divine cakes, this is a creative space for the local community, offering creative writing classes, book clubs, and more. Nicola and I are scheming and dreaming about how to get me over there to do a workshop. Hmm. You all know how I feel about the power of dreaming!

Anyway, check out Nicola's The Laden Table. There is nothing more inspiring to me than people who pursue their dreams and make them manifest!


  1. That's so awesome! Love the name!

  2. Wow...this is SO cool. It's got to be really, really weird to have something like that exist that came out of your head. I remember watching the extras on the movie "Stardust" and Neil Gaiman was talking about feeling bad because he wrote a flying pirate ship into his story and then the movie-people had to build it on set for multi-millions of dollars. Awesome for Nicola, too. It's just awesome all around :)
