On a recent trip to Los Angeles, I met a friend of mine at the Alcove Cafe and Bakery in the Los Feliz neighborhood. While waiting in line to use the men's room, I noticed an article on the wall about a table in the restaurant where guests leave handwritten messages. There were people sitting at the table who had no idea that in the drawers other people had left messages to be read. My friend and I left a FEARLESS message for strangers to read. Such a small, simple, anonymous act of generosity, compassion and love. Life is full of surprises and I'm so happy I came upon this magical table. The messages are hopeful, inspired, silly, random and all perfect.
Here is a selection of messages left inside the table drawers. If you are ever in LA it is worth the visit . . . and the food is really lovely too.
