Object writing: Thanksgiving


The late afternoon sun sits just above the awning, pouring a diffuse light into the coffee shop. A large reclaimed wood table marks the centre of the establishment, drawing eclectic elements of design and decoration to itself. A school holiday on the eve of Thanksgiving has forced families into a 4-day weekend, a blessing grown tenfold by Mother Nature’s friendly disposition.

Coaxed out of their homes by summer’s last hurrah, customers slowly fill every seat in the small, welcoming space. Some come and go, continuing their stroll coffee in hand. Others settle on the patio, soon to be met by friends or greeted by acquaintances.

Distracted, I watch the moment unfold through the large windows in front of me. The street and its activity unroll, bordered by the black and white awning, each window like one of 24 frames. A second in time.
