Sunshine Project – Day 17, Outdoor Cafe, Glenside, PA

Sunshine, January 6, 2015.

We have a light snow falling this morning. I wanted to find a place where a sunshine could get snowed on – hiding and re-emerging when the snow melts. On the other hand, I didn’t want to go too far out of my way. I truly dislike driving in the snow.

Snowy day. A good day to take the train and avoid the roads.

So this location, the outdoor seating area of the café in the Glenside train station, seemed perfect. After all, I was already going there to drop my husband off.

The tables, huddled together.

Now, I know that no one is going to sit outside in the snow at the tables. And even if a person wanted to, they couldn’t, because the chairs and tables are chained up together for the season. However, they are still sitting in their little area, right off the parking lot and the train platform, bravely holding up despite the weather. And I do know a steady stream of people will pass right by this location – the lure of hot coffee is especially strong in the winter. So someone will see this sunshine sooner or later and take it along.

In the summer, these tables are set out by the building, each with a vase of flowers on it, and the seats are always occupied. People come to this café to pass time with friends, read the paper, or to grab a bite to eat before hopping on the train. And then of course there are the coffee-drinkers, any time of day. Something of this feeling lingers even in the snow, I think.

Happy sunshine.
