… pretty well describes my day and this lovely rose and cloud composite; slightly modified from the large size in my guest suite where it is one of a tryptic set on the wall.
Another such day is underway and looking forward to starting it with ten shots of espresso made from a wonderful roast of Kona coffee that I did earlier this week. I like to do two different roasts and blend them; a medium and a dark and get the flavors unique to each roast. Roasting your own makes a lot of sense as premium Columbian beans (my favorite) are only About $6.00 a pound … compare that with the $15.00 per pound you pay for comparable beans in the stores. The roaster only costs about $150.00 and will last for many years. Math dictates that if you go through a pound a week you will save about $300.00 the first year even after factoring in the cost of the roaster, and the quality is so much better than the major brands. Didn’t intend to write a commercial, but I guess I did. Contact Jon Burman at www.burmancoffee.com
Almost time for the first espresso shots … time for a little sleep. Good morning Jogi … text you later and let you know if I’m still breathing, if not I probably won’t text you :+)
Have a beautiful day and enjoy the things that make you feel good and share a smile or many of them.
At nightfall…though I know I shall sometime no more
Open my eyes to the light or day, I am one who looks at stars when
Unchained from the work-bench at Nightfall.
They are a sign that I am not ephemeral,
Not you, nor you, whoever you are.
The dawn comes and the dark and the sign sparkling in the brooding night,
Forever and forever.
