“Coffee is far more than a beverage. It is an invitation to life, disguised as a cup of warm liquid. It’s a trumpet wakeup call or a gentle rousing hand on your shoulder … Coffee is an experience, an offer, a rite of passage, a good excuse to get together.”
- Nichole Johnson

We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
I am the shadow my words cast.
At the temple,
there is a poem called “Loss”,
carved into the stone.
It has three words… but

You cannot read “Loss”…
You can only feel it.
