Important for Booksellers to 'Breathe in the Sweet Moments'

Donna Paz Kaufman and Mark Kaufman

"We've been wearing roller skates for months as first there was so much to do to launch the bookstore, now we've focused on shifting to organizing daily operations. Every day is over-flowing with things to do.... When we've come home exhausted from the day, we too acknowledge that there's nothing else we'd rather be doing at this stage in our lives.... Every day the interruptions keep us from getting things done, but saying 'hello' to a customer who has come in with a neighbor is too important to miss.... [I]t's important to take off the roller skates, stop, and breathe in the sweet moments that enrich each day in the bookstore."

--Donna Paz Kaufman, who, with husband Mark, opened Story & Song Neighborhood Bookstore Bistro, Fernandina Beach, Fla., earlier this year, in a post on the Paz & Associates blog
