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.” (Gertrude Stein)

Thanks Gertrude. Couldn’t have it said it better myself.

Have a good weekend…

  1. Good point, but I guess, some where along this road, coffee stopped being a drink that made you stop and mull over, but more a statement that one drinks coffee.. THere are purists ofcourse, that believe in the former, but that crowd is indeed becoming rare.

    1. I like coffee but am not a purist. For me it’s totally about the quasi-ritual where I can sit and ‘do nothing’. It just happens to be coffee which I happen to really like.
