oh boy


The coffee is prepared in such a way
that it makes those who drink it witty,
at least there is not a single soul who,
on quitting the house,
does not believe himself four times
wittier than when he entered.

Charles Louis De Secondat
1689-1755

I'm glad you stopped by the Three Muses Challenge blog, and anxiously await your return. I've listened to your music (twice), savored your collages, and appreciated your thoughts!

I swear...whenever I occasionally have SB coffee...my sleeping dreams feel more like acid trips. This only happens with SB coffee. Anyone else having this experience?

Also...love your newest collage.

Hi! C.M.,
Nice quote by Charles Louis De Secondat (1689-1755) and I plan to listen to the sounds on my way out of the door.(Your blog door...not a physical door.)
Thanks, for sharing!

Yes, welcome to the Muses Challenge. Your picture certainly does qualify with the "four tenors" singing their hearts out in the foreground! Great artwork. I love your blog and have enjoyed the opportunity to browse through it, marvelling at your unique style. You will find us a very friendly bunch at the Muses and hope you will be back for more in the future.

this is outstanding! i love that beautiful background and all the images work together so well. i know after i've had a few cups of coffee i feel like i could sing (but i don't because i can't carry a tune in a bucket) but i feel like it none-the-less.

A grand quote. Perhaps I need to drink more coffee to regain some otherwise lost wittiness!

Wonderful collage work over the past few posts, cm. Very creative and smart stuff.

This Dave Dudley ditty, extravagently extolling the virtues of "coffee" should be your blog's theme song. Love it! Great stuff!
