warmth reheated

"Ain't it funny how coffee
never tastes as good as it smells?

As you grow older, you'll discover life
is very much like coffee.

The aroma is always better
than the actuality.

May that be your thought for the day."

Walter Slezak
from the film: Born To Kill

And for those of you creating art,
check this link. I believe they are
signing up to 500 people,
or until the books are gone.
I signed up a week ago

and they are close to 200 now.

look here: TroyArt

Hi! C.M..
Hmmm...(As I scratch my temple-I knew that this quote looked very familiar...It was taken from one of my favorite film noir.)
Thanks, For sharing...
...I most definitely, will check-out the TroyArt link...being an artist, but of course!
DeeDee ;-D

Ténèbres à la lumière... said...

Oops! I was so "busy" checking out the quote and link...That I forgot to mention...very nice or at least "unique" graphic(s) and sounds.

Von said...

Sorry to bre a spoiler but I actually don't agree at all.With age we come to appreciate all aspects of coffee equally in a more balanced manner.Enjoy!

Tom said...

too true about coffee...i know several people who won't touch the stuff, but love the aroma. Your art piece is more surreal than usual..perhaps the b&w effect has something to do with

dd: Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Hope all is well.

von: Thanks for stopping by. If you'll notice, it's a quote about coffee from a film. ; )

tom: Not true at all, but then, life is indeed different for all folks. As for the collage, that was the intention.

Subby said...

Most of life is about learning to savor the here and now. I think that gets easier with age.

Well, how true is that?!

The Troy Art video with the cherry blossom tree is engaging. I've always wanted to own a cherry tree, and remember as a kid how obsessed I was climbing a friend's tree and filling my tummy with tart cherries. Lately I've been drinking organic cherry juice *tart cherry* Ha!

I love the smell of coffee in the morning. Smells like... awesomeness.

Coffee Messiah said...

subT: I hear ya and Thanks for popping by. Hope all is well your way.

merle: Of course I couldn't agree more.

sam: Thanks for stopping by. The video has nothing to do with the TroyArt project though.
And excellent for drinking the Organic Cheery Juice! Enjoy your well deserved vacation.

jafb: Oh yeah! Thanks for stopping by!

Love the eye-tunnel ref in this piece. What does a story 'line' look like? -j

Anil P said...

Oh yes, it smells better than it tastes most times. More so when you turn into a street and smell Coffee when you least expect to.

Coffee Messiah said...

j: Thanks for stopping by.

anil p: I bet it's amazing there when that occurs.

Stephen said...

Yes, I like the aroma but I don't like the taste. It's strange because most things taste exactly like they smell, if you know what I mean(!)

John said...

As I sit here enjoying my morning joe I am not only enjoying the aroma but knowing that the taste is just the beginning of another great day!

Have a good one all!

Unknown said...

The aroma of coffee beans as I grind them can fill my soul with joy.

Coffee Messiah said...

stephen: Maybe you're not inhaling the fragrance of the "good stuff?"
Thanks for popping by.

john: I hear you!

nick: I'm with you on that one!
