It's been three or four months now since I went back there. The transition has been odd because it's felt unreal to be back there this time. It's taken some getting used to, being back in exactly the same place I was so many Friday nights in the past.
This is going to be a positive year. I am determined to make it so. Everything is going right, and according to plan. This is going to be a great year of reporting, and a great year of helping to rebuild the tavern as an active place in this community. There are so many reasons why this is important, even if you never come in.
I can't do that big history right now, for it is late and I have a full day of work ahead of me tomorrow. I just know I feel good at the end of my shift because this is what I want to be doing. I want to make sure I have enough money to get me through the month and to make sure I can meet my obligations. I am blessed that I've been given a fourth or fifth chance to work in a place that I consider sacred ground.
So, what will happen in 2014 at the tavern? I don't know, but I'm going to help to work make it a better place for all of us.
