I Love Coffee (And Gertrude Stein)

Sometimes someone says something and you just think ‘that’s exactly how I feel’. This is one of those times.

“Coffee is real good when you drink it. It gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink. It’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.”

Thanks Gertrude.

  1. I commented on your other blog but it bears repeating: cafes are lifesavers for me these days. There’s definitely something special about the atmosphere they create…


  2. Jason – I landed on your post today through the Blogging 101 assignment page. I’m so glad to have found you. What initially pulled me in was the reference to coffee, and Sunday morning cafes, and espresso, and time ti think. As an admitted coffee freak I am uncontrollably drawn in that direction, so when I saw the link, well, need I say more.


  3. Amen to that! I just finished my first cup of coffee this morning while reading your post. Thanks for the encouragement for the second cup. Don’t mind if I do. As a coffee addict myself, I will definitely pop over to your other blog now.
