Farmer's Market Detour

 "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms~to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." ~ Viktor Frankl

    The plan was all about going to the farmer's market, buying pumpkins, heirloom tomatoes and dancing outside with the local musicians. The surprise was an empty parking lot much to the horror of the back seat passenger who was head strong about buying a pumpkin. We blamed it on October, decided to have lunch at another place. Our little back seat passenger requested a window seat with pumpkins, lots of pumpkins and a chocolate shake. There weren't any detour signs so we cranked up the music and drove to wherever. Lucky for us, the new plan landed us in a small vegan restaurant in an old neighborhood oozing with a patina of brick, flowering vines and oodles of vintage.

  What to our wandering eyes should appear, but a window seat of pillows in oranges and reds with 
pumpkins, lots of pumpkins! The back seat passenger had trouble hiding her smile.

     Healthy chocolate shake with almond milk so big it takes two to drink...$6, faux mac and cheese with cashew butter...$4, rainbow veggie taco wrapped in a collard green...$10, letting go of the plan, PRICELESS!
