A Place to Create & to Be in the Tower – Mia Cuppa Caffe’

by Tom Sims

Mark DeRaud grew up in the coffee house movement of the 1960s. He was, by his own description, an original “Jesus Freak.”
I remember those days. While Mark was hanging out in Atwater, I was doing the same thing in Richmond, Virginia. Whenever I visit a place like Mia Cuppa Caffe, I go back in time and forward in time.
