Is every day a new chapter? I think so. I believe that every morning we get to open our eyes, stretch, take a few deep breaths, wipe the cold out our eyes, is a new chapter and we get to write it. While there might be some constants in our books, we get to create the elements that construct our daily activities as well as how we react to the variables that come along, unexpected, sometimes out of nowhere, and just like that, all of us are content creators in our own lives.
What does this have to do with Cueva Bar Cafe?
I was thinking about the rona, and when would the restrictions for businesses be lifted so we can go back to normal. Then I reminded myself the old normal will never be back. It is uncertain how all this will pan out if I leave it to the outer factors that can contribute to every chapter we get to write together at Cueva, and in that moment I said to myself: a new chapter starts today! I get to choose how to react to every abrupt curve or drop in the roller coaster, from screaming frantically or screaming joyfully. All this was happening as I was reading an email one of our newsletter subscriber sent me in regards to my last blog about a possible vegan burger. Just as I was feeling grateful for the connection and that some of you actually do read these blogs, some guests came in through the door. So yesterday's chapter went from us having a reservation for four guests to filling up our dinning room one round. One round these days means 1/3 of our seating capacity. We saw a few new faces and a few returns whom I actually last saw the week before shit hit the fan in California.
So, about those of you who read these blogs and newsletters, I say thank you. I truly appreciate that some of you take a few minutes of your day to read what I have to share with the world and then take a couple more minutes to send me some feedback. Is like golfing when you're not a pro and just do it for fun, for a charity event or even as they say "to do business". You might not have a good overall run, but is those pars or even one birdie that makes you want to go back for another round, start from zero or picked up where you left of, and write a new chapter.
