Au café

Sunny Friday afternoon was spent in this local coffee shop, reading and writing while sipping a cup of iced latte. Nice music and cool a/c air kept me in there a while.

Saroyan's "Gaston" is a cute short story about a father and his little girl talking about a small bug, Gaston that resides in a peach seed. Well depicted is the father Saroyan's fantasized world view and personality that wasn't understood by his wife. The innocence of a little girl is so adorable, sometimes cruel.  The story is told calmly, in a subtly melancholic mood that left a warm sentiment in my mind.
