We thought that time had frozen somehow. We just stood there for a while, before accepting that we were frozen in our bodies. We had awareness but some willingness to exist was gone. Like steam, It had simply followed physical rules and It left us. The forests grew around us. Our bodies aged as they […]
I’ve never really taken the time to deconstruct any kind of entertainment. I simply embrace the rhythm of the current media and allow my mind to soar to distant emotional realities that I know I can’t access in my own lifetime. That isn’t how we do things, as adults. Ageing isn’t all that bad I […]
I’m still in Africa. The city is developed enough to give a sense of overall efficiency while still incorporating the rustic nature of the continent. It is relaxed. The gentle rumble of the sleepy city reminds me of my home town and I’ve enjoyed getting to know my own shell as I continue to […]
So this is how it began, the coffee, the love, the addiction…
I was having a love infused cup of coffee. It was then that I decided that I needed to do something with my writing and this is it, I thought, blogging. About what I love; Coffee, Love…and other Addictions (which I may or may not share according to
the family popular opinion)
I live and love in Cape Town, South Africa. 27 and qualified as an IT/education facilitator, travel agent(sigh), bookkeeper…I am fluctuating between paranoid panic and mild euphoria about the future.
I wrote the bulk of that in August, 2014. I was just a travel agent back then, wondering if I would see the world. So much has changed…
Still, I ground myself in the Christmas blend that opens up the day to me. Lethargy slowly evaporates and my thoughts begin to dart through the tasks looming in from the schedule in my mind. The heavy thoughts that keep me lagging in time rocket into the sunlight. I know that they must come down at some point in time. Later, fortunately. I have lots to accomplish today.
With 2018 just a few days away, I must engage my chosen routine more often. The alarm can’t be ignored. The drowsiness can’t be entertained. Wakefulness must be embraced. The circadian rhythm can only help me as far as I can help myself.
The festivities haven’t helped, that’s for sure. Gluttonous eating and postponed workouts have fulfilled their promise and my bodily discomfort has returned. It clouds my judgement and renders my focus to the wind.
The foundations of success will have to begin (again) with this blend of “rare, aged Sumatra”, courtesy of Starbucks™…(not sponsors, unfortunately). Continue reading “Wake up and smell the Christmas blend”
Slipping and sliding through 2017 has helped us prep for a running jump into 2018.
I may or may not be referencing cross-fit.
Before becoming a vegetarian, I scoffed at the bean family with more contempt than I knew what to do with. Now, the same humble bean sates me like no dead animal ever did… Aside from its versatility in the kitchen, the extraordinarily affordable white kidney bean that I cooked for supper has brought me a […]
I’m a huge fan of innovation. I love the sparks of future that pop up when I do exciting new things…today, I decided to innovate my breakfast with a popular but ‘boring’ grain: Oats I usually cook Jungle Oats in milk for about 10 minutes, add some honey and butter for flavour and call myself […]
