This was a grouping on our table at an Irish café last September. Mismatched, all white and looking for all the world like a tight group of friends or maybe a band of musicians. Real cream in the jug. Real sugar in the sugar bowl. Fabulous coffee. Looking out the window onto the water and boats along the west coast. Chatting with the woman waiting on us... and discovering she'd spent a summer in Austin the year before and has enjoyed her visit to San Antonio. Small, beautiful world.
