Took this image last week at a local coffee shop while sitting on the outdoor patio, enjoying the nice sunny weather. However, this morning has presented overcast skies and 50 degrees. But, we call that good out here in Colorado. My to do list has nothing listed and plan on keeping it that way.
“It takes great courage to see the world in its tainted glory and still love it.” Oscar Wilde
“It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.” Dave Berry
“The secret of health is not to mourn the past or worry about the future but to live in the present moment wisely.” Zen Proverb
It’s Sunday morning. Cold! Present temperature is -5 degrees. Our second day of sub-zero temperatures. The high yesterday was only 6 degrees. As I parked the car at the curb in front of the Bean Cycle I questioned my sanity. Oh, well the mocha and Leslie’s and Carly’s smiles are worth it.
The Bean Cycle shares their space with Wolverine Press, a used book store and a local publishing company. I’ve shared images from the bookshelves at Wolverine Press before. I come down here to relax with a cup of coffee or a mocha, maybe write or use the internet and wander through the used books. I enjoy sitting in the loft and look down on the regulars, even in this cold. By patronizing a favorite coffeehouse I establish a connection with the baristas and other patrons. They become an extended family. Therefore my insanity. 🙂
We’ve decided it’s too cold to stay here in Colorado so my sister, Sheree, and I are flying to Phoenix today for Thanksgiving with family. The only electronic devices will be my phone, Kindle reader and the X-T10 with 27mm and 35mm. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
