"If you excuse me a minute.
I'm going to have a cup of coffee."
- Crew broadcast from Apollo 11's Eagle, 1969
Actually, I'm taking a bit more than a coffee break. It's time for a week or so off of being online, and time to get out in nature and be with friends, so I thought I'd let you know I'd be gone a bit with a peek into my mixed media coffee journal.
A cup of coffee in the morning is a tradition at our house and was brought to a new level when my daughter became a barista. It's also a kind of cultural trademark in the Pacific Northwest. Many ideas, books, meetings, deep conversations, laughter, and times of relaxation are shared over cups of coffee or tea.
I hope you are giving yourself time to take a break, rest, be quiet, enjoy nature and raise a cup or glass to the joy of being alive.
Blessings to you this day!
