State Of The World Today & Mary Delaney Book

Started this book and for anyone interested in
history and art forms, you should seek this out.
And goes to show, it's never too late -

In the late 18th century, the twice-­widowed Mary Delany
created nearly a thousand breathtakingly beautiful
and intricate paper “mosaicks” of flowers.
Glued onto black backgrounds,
they were not only stunning but also botanically precise.
Mrs. D., as her latest biographer, the poet Molly Peacock,
sometimes calls her, began this project in her early 70s
and only stopped roughly 10 years later, in 1783,
when her eyesight declined.
Today the collages reside in the British Museum.

The state of the World today -

 Are we sure it is desirable
for a man's spirit not to be at war with itself,
or that it is better to be serene
 and ready to go to dinner
than to be excited and unwilling
to stop for a cup of coffee, even?

 William Saroyan

Little Boxes

Too many times in life, people tend
to put others in a little box,
as if we all fit neatly somewhere -

After all these years,
I'm able to accept the
fact I am different,
embrace it,
and not worry anymore
about whether I do
or don't fit in any box -

That's what this one
was made for this past week -

1K Coffee Company Sierra Madre Blend

"Dinsdale, he was a nice boy -

He nailed my head to a coffee table."

Monty Python

We recently ran across this brand of
coffee in a local store.

It was ground, and Best By date
was 5/17 -

Ran a cold press and tried this morning -

Smooth, fruity and no after taste.

If you ever see the 1K brand, you
might want to give it a try.

Edward Abbey & Coffee

Our culture runs on coffee and gasoline,

the first often tasting like the second.
