It's a melancholy kind of day
Adrift in clouds of gray
While the snow falls in such a way
Without direction or care
Neither cheated nor fair
Quite the pair
The snow and I
Winter...I miss it so. Many people think I am crazy for loving the weather here in the Northwest. "I don't know how you handle nine months of gray skies," they tell me. I don't either, but I love it. Unfortunately, where I am at, there is an abundant shortage of snow in the winter months.
A new cup of coffee and a New Year. Happy New Year everyone!
I guess a blooming rose is as good an image as any to symbolize a fresh start.
I want to thank all of you that continue to read this blog, continue to support me, and continue to be amazing! I have a few exciting things lined up for 2019, and I look forward to sharing it all with you. I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season.
Be well, and like all the roses out there, stay beautiful!
As we creep ever closer to a new year, I look into the bottom of my cup of coffee and see a familiar face. This face causes me to recall the excitement I use to feel when I saw a new anime, played a new video game, or read a new comic book. To many, this may seem ridiculous, and looking back as an adult, perhaps it was. However, when I look back on it, I am filled with gratitude. You see, what I felt is what I define passion to be. I assume there are some that may have no passions. And I assume there are those that are fortuitous to have passions, but are unable to pursue them for one reason or another. I think about this, and I realize what a rare opportunity I have, and it fills me with gratitude.
Good morning again!
Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas!
The first song I listened to today was "Make No Sound in the Digital Forest," by Incubus. For those that know me well, I am a hopeless Incubus fan. I would say that my interpretation of my coffee's statement was heavily influenced by this song.
I'd be lying if I said I pictured this exact scene when I first looked into my cup. But, that is the great thing about art. You set out to do one thing, and amidst your creative journey, your thoughts grow and evolve, adapting and conforming to the image in front of you.
This blog has been incredibly therapeutic for me. I usually hassle myself with rules of perspective, lighting, color choices, etc. But with these small little pieces of art, I've been able to relax and experiment, and I have really been enjoying myself. I hope you all are enjoying as well!
Be good everyone, and be excellent to each other! I will be back with more!
Hello! I hope everyone's weekend was full of fun and laughs, with little to no stress!
I hope this blog finds everyone well! It's Friday, so that should help. I don't have much to say today, but go enjoy the weekend. Christmas is a stressful time for many. Don't forget to take a little time to enjoy yourself. Spend some time with a significant other, hang out with some friends, just do what you do to enjoy yourself! Less that holiday stress and take the slower path through the weekend. Have a cup of coffee while you're doing it and see if it can tell you what you should do ;) Mine is telling me to go swim in the winter time...cut the coffee some slack...it's just coffee after all.
