But times change, and people's lives change. The store closed last summer. There are plenty of food co-ops and Super Supplements close enough that I can still get the things I need, but I miss the experience of being a regular at Cornucopia. I miss the convenience, I miss my friends there, and I miss the children of the staff that I watched from infancy. Beautiful children, they all looked a little like Eloise Wilkin illustrations from Little Golden Books of my childhood, and they always brightened my day.
