Mud Street Postcard

One of the framed items pictured on the cover of the third novel, The Aqueous Solution, is a postcard from Mud Street Café, where I wrote nearly all of the Cycle.

There’s only a small reference to the Café in the books, where three characters enjoy a meal as they tour Eureka Springs like resident tourists, celebrating their reunion.

Mud Street Café doesn’t actually offer a postcard for sale, so I mocked one up from a quick iPhone photo I took early one Monday morning before the crowds showed up, plus their website header.

I thought about just borrowing one of the menu cards and including it, but I already had a vertical visual in the shot, the brochure for Blue Spring Heritage Center.

The cordial atmosphere of the café; the hospitality of manager (now owner) and employees, the delicious food and coffee were great fuel and inspiration for writing — I highly recommend it!

Yeah, as I was creating the postcard, I noticed the person with long blond(e) hair and spectacles in the far left of the photograph. That’s not me. I have no idea who it might have been!
