[Manic Mondays] New Hope

posted in: Manic Mondays | 0

We were not thwarted by the French bakery this time.  The brioche and macaroons were amazeballs.  While New Hope is in a state of transition right now due to the constant flooding, it’s still part of my cosmogram.  The scene/ is never what it used to be but I hope for more freak-friendly shops to open and that established freak-businesses can find some more pep in their step again.  Still, it’s been an important part of what’s shaped me as a Pagan and where I’ve always fell in love.  I still find new ways to open my heart there, no matter how much it changes.
