Sadly the American culture has devalued the coffee culture. We are too preoccupied with keeping busy, that to sit and enjoy a coffee is gastly!
When I offer coffee in my home I am not just offering a beverage, I am offering my attention. I am putting aside my to-dos, my lists, my phone, my computer. I am sitting with you at the table, talking, making eye contact, listening, and being love.
I lament over this while sitting in my sun porch, early in the morn, listening to the day begin, and slowly enjoying my day's first cup of love.
