If We Were Having Coffee Right Now…

If we were having coffee right now, I would be in my element. We would be undoubtedly in a coffee-house, sitting by a window so we could observe the sunset. I would ask you if I should watch Sabrina on TCM or the last full night of the Olympics? Then I would wonder if my coffee has Brazilian beans. I might ask ” Have you been to Rio? It is on my Bucket list. Something about the view from the Christ the Redeemer Statue sets my heart on fire in a way that is simply beyond the scope of words.”

But I digress…

 Then I would remember I prefer espresso and have no idea how it is made. I just love the smooth, slightly sweet flavor. Did I tell them soy milk? Yeah , it has that slightly sour soy tang, no worries.

I would ask you about your week , hoping to get caught up in your story. Hoping you will not get around to asking me about my week. My mind would then wander a bit, but eventually I would immerse myself in your tale of intrigue, humor, or ordinary awesomeness. After-all, we are friends and your company is plenty for me. Absolutely fine company, that you are.

Later on, after we had a second cup or more, I may inquire if you were aware of the healing aspects of coffee? If not, I may mention this article I read about all the ways coffee can restore wellness and prevent disease. If all my “addictions” were good for you, wow! A girl can dream, right.

I am already imagining the unique, intoxicating aroma of freshly roasted beans, one of my favorite smells ever. Can you smell it too? Are you glad I invited you out for coffee? Your conversation helped me forget my IBS troubles, the insufferable heat wave, and all the drama at work. It did help me remember the magic of the simple pleasures of time on Earth ~ such as sunsets, setting the DVR for Olympics and TCM, the proliferation of coffeehouse culture, our glorious friendship, and my love for blogging.

Oh, one last detail ~ I would declare with glee
” This is my 500th post! WordPress just told me so, woohoo!”

Hey everyone out in cyberspace. What’s shaking? I added a horse image to accompany this blog because I remember being told ” Hay is for horses!” whenever I would say Hey!

With Mars in the very beginning of Sagittarius, horses are very fitting anyway. I have missed everyone so much, but have not had the time or inclination to write and publish lately. I really wish I could devote more energy to leisurely going through my reader, slowly and thoughtfully drinking in each post, perhaps with a cup of tea.

Forgive me for not answering your comments sooner or adding my own to your material. I do the best I can as I still adjust to my new responsibilities.

Welcome to my new readers! I hope you hang in there with me. The archives are filled with material on a plethora of topics, so please avail yourself of the oldies but goodies while I work on my next draft. There is a piece brewing about magic and enchantment and some wonderful synchronicities. Classic litebeing material, if I don’t say so myself.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the shift from Scorpio to Sag. Can you feel the change? I know that I do and I am grateful for the respite from the shadows and subterfuge. What a relief to move about with less baggage and more transparency.

Until we meet again…..
