So everyone knows about taking breaks at Starbucks. Many backroads in America have a Starbucks. Starbucks have become America’s modern version of the old European Cafe Haus or Pub where people form instant connections and communities can develop. 

Matt was working on his artwork in his lap when we met him in Slidell, Louisiana. Matt is an artist and has just finished work on his first novel, a fantasy set in New Orleans. Full of Delta discoveries, his book also features his art work.

Matt is so creative! He told us about his idea for “Starbucks Theatre”. One clergyman he met at Starbucks worked at the local mental hospital and described to Matt the exorcism he had performed that morning on someone inhabited by Harry Potter. Hmmm. Interesting.
