I have a dream of one day running a small cafe with artwork by friends and I all over the walls.


I would call it "fika" because it's such a beautiful looking word, but also means "coffee" or an afternoon coffee break with baked treats and friends in Swedish.


I would find the best coffee and tea to serve, and bake fresh scones and cookies every day, and spend the rest of my time making artwork.


Okay, so it may not logistically work that smoothly, but it's alright to dream, right?

  4. I'll join your dream, Melinda. We can be partners! And then I can ask my co-worker, Nik Firka, to be a Fika barista.
