Last week, a friend and I decided it was time to get out and “do lunch” at our favorite restaurant, Carrabba’s Italian Grill in Cool Springs. After all of this COVID misery, it was finally time to go to a restaurant.
I am not sure why there is so much fear about going to a restaurant. Our favorite restaurants need for us to get back to normal and start eating out again.
We ate outside, six feet away from the table next to us. I asked the guys at the table closest to us if I could take their picture. Interesting, and unknowing to me, I took a picture of Bill Miller, a three-time Grammy winner, singer/songwriter, musician, guitarist, and player of the Native American flute and painter. He is of Mohican heritage and has used all the artist gifts God gave him. I went to his website at billmiller.co and discovered an amazing man. I encourage you all to go to his website and discover Bill’s powerful message.
Bill Miller’s life message is about reconciliation through redemption and chronicles of hope.
I asked if I might include his picture in this blog post and a little about his accomplishments. Of course, he said,”Yes.” He was eating lunch with a friend who introduced himself to my friend and I, and he told us about Bill.
Living close to Nashville, there is always an opportunity to sit next to someone “famous” while “doing lunch.”
This writing is not about Bill per se, but encouragement to get out and live your life again.
Everyone I talk to says they are tired of living in the shadows of
Most restaurants are nearly empty, so the risk of exposure by going inside is likely minimal, and besides many restaurants have made a provision for eating outside if possible.
“Doing lunch” with friends is always a fun thing to do to reconnect and catch up on what has happened in our lives for the past three months.
Since I have been cooking every day for months, I have to admit I don’t automatically think about going out to lunch. However, after all of these months of isolation, it is fun to get out and enjoy our favorite food at our favorite restaurant with a friend.
It is so important for us to stay connected with friends and extended family. Life is too short to live in isolation.
Let’s support our economy and favorite restaurants and businesses. It’s about time!!
