Ah… that first caffeinated hot beverage of the morning!
As I say, coffee is not my beverage of choice, but I like the rituals people develop around it. There’s a sense that their day depends on that first cup’s being just right.
I’m a tea drinker, and for me, it’s as much about my beautiful mug, warm in my hands, and the scent of the rising steam as it is about the taste and (acknowledging reality) the caffeine!
But I like hanging in a cafe — any cafe, anywhere — and watching people come to life with their morning drink. For some people you can see it’s a daily occurrence, everything happens quickly and efficiently. Others take a longer time… but the delight is palpable.
We’re funny people with our individual habits. All of of us different and, yet, so very much the same.
Grab your cuppa, whatever it is, and make this a morning of Peace.
