Coffee Break


“What do you want?”
“Just coffee. Black – like my soul.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

Yes!! Once again it’s time for a coffee break. As I have mentioned or shown in past posts (I have a confession A simple cup of Joe…and Morning Reflections), I like coffee.

“It doesn’t matter where you’re from- or how you feel…There’s always peace in a strong cup of coffee.”― Gabriel Bá, Daytripper

One of my favorite things to do is to wake up eat a solid breakfast and drink a very strong cup of coffee.  So in honor of that and reflecting some of my favorite past travels.  I would like to share some of my most recent favorite coffee breaks.  So here is to bountiful beans which are inviting and welcoming to strangers!!

Coffee is a language in itself.   Jackie Chan

No matter how you take it or where they serve it.. you just can’t beat coffee in Turkey!!

I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.   Lewis Black

I like coffee anywhere, but coffee in Vietnam.. though small.. it doesn’t get any better.

“Hydrogenated and androgynous milky white love is all I have to offer you. Would you like me to pour it in your coffee, or directly into your soul?
”
― Jarod Kintz, The Days of Yay are Here! Wake Me Up When They’re Over.

As you can probably tell, people are my favorite subject.  The less posed the better.  The following are some of my most favorite from a recent hash I participate in.  Just normal people doing normal people things.  I hope you enjoy this little bit of humanity in Nepal.

Well that’s all folks.  Ya’ll come back now.

One big wave…always on the move


Cheri Lucas Rowlands posted a great theme this week on the Daily Post.  I have decided to interpret it with my favorite moving object.. no not myself…..

“Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.”

― Sarah Kay

While in Vietnam I decided to take a rest stop and catch my breath in Danang. I was super exhausted from the hiking, biking and canoeing marathon and just wanted to take a couple of days and rest at the ocean.  I woke up one morning and decided to take some photos of the sun coming up..and later the sun going down. I stood in one place and just kept on shooting photos of the always moving waves.  From the same exact spot every single picture was so different and so beautiful.  I hope you enjoy.

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.

“The sea is emotion incarnate. It loves, hates, and weeps. It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles. No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can’t.” 
― Christopher PaoliniEragon

How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

Here are some other photos of my beach time.

I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows.
