Downtown Medford is empty Sunday mornings, I have learned. Most residents must be attending services or sleeping in, maybe spending time with their families. I planned to visit my nontraditional church, the library, on a Sunday morning this summer to work on my science-fiction series. Unfortunately, I was an hour early. My ride had left, so I wandered to the nearest coffee shop. Closed, too. Ten a. m. is too early for a Sunday, apparently. Someplace had to be open.
