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.
It is an overcast, melancholy day. The rain falls melodically outside my second story window, fusing with the sounds of the ambient lo-fi hip-hop playing through my computer. My husky sleeps soundly at my side while I sit and contemplate what lies within my finished cup of coffee. The diffuse, overcast light seems to mimic my mood. I find it is a tranquil feeling. Everything on the surface seems quiet and dull.
However, there seems to be some sort of restlessness about. Possibly even mischief. Is there a fox in the hen house?
Hello! Another cup of coffee to start another day. I fear this one is a little out of place in regards to the holidays, but inspiration has no clock! I would like to appropriately title this piece, 'The Nightmare Before Christmas.'
I am really enjoying this process thus far, and I hope that you all continue to take this journey through this black canvas that is coffee with me. Have a great day everyone!
I was sitting and enjoying my morning coffee when I was hit with a bit of inspiration. I quite often find that I have nothing to write about on my blog, and I may have found a solution!
Whilst staring into the infinite void of empty mug before me, deeply saddened that it was finished, I saw a creature that was reciprocating my anguish, and I just had to share the shy guy.
I see little images in the bottom of my mug quite often, as I am sure you all do. For me, it will be a great way to get my day started and wake the right-side of my brain up, in addition to giving me material for my blog. So please feel free to comment or even share your own coffee creations!

All the Best,
