If We Were Having Coffee …



If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am trying to get as much done in one morning as I neglected to accomplish in a week, so this will be a brief conversation.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I went out of town for a couple of days, and remembered that I am really quite capable of navigating around new places successfully, and that I can comfortably enjoy a dinner out in an unfamiliar city all alone, and that by being such a night-owl, I miss a lot of freshness and beauty that morning people experience as a matter of routine.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m in a state of transformation right now. My life has become too heavy on the ‘oh-wells’, and too light on the ‘yippees’, so with each new day, I am moving from drab beige to contented lavender and awakening peppermint, and strengthening bergamot.

If we were having coffee, I’d finally ask about you and what you have discovered during the past week and what kind of a weekend you have planned and if you are participating in the #WeekendCoffeeShare at Part Time Monster, hosted by Diana.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I need to stop typing and head outside to take a multitude of photos for work, blog and just fun – and that I hope your weekend is as productive and/or relaxing as you hope it might be – and that it includes at least a touch of unexpected giddiness.

  1. I miss being a night own (work demands I be there ready to start at 8:15.. with a bus commute it means I have to be awake early) but will admit that it is kind of need to see the way the earlier part of the day is. It just has a different feel. But I so very much miss the serene peace and quiet and the beautiful sky of 1 or 2 am.
    What have I discovered this week? That’s a really good question… I think one of the big things is that I learned that I can pick things up pretty quickly. I moved to a new position at work about a month ago, and am starting to navigate some new territory with that, figuring some things out, and am pleased with how comfortable I feel in doing that learning.
    Thanks for the coffee! I love the #WeekendCoffeeShare 🙂


    1. Congratulations on the new position! Isn’t it great to stretch our brains and succeed in new ways?
      And I agree about the tranquility of the night. When traffic stops, when people sleep, that is the best time to hear the earth and sky speak.

  2. If we were having coffee I would apologise profusely for my late arrival. I’ve bitten of a little more than I can chew of late. I would tell you that I’m thrilled to hear about your transformative state and look forward to hearing about many ‘yippee’ moments. You would tell me all about your out of town trip, and I would take my coffee outside with you, because I love taking pictures and spending time with friends. I hope you’ve had a glorious weekend. Thanks for perking me up on this work-heavy Sunday!

  3. I’m also a bit of a night owl, and on the occasional mornings that I’m awake early, I like the quietness and deserted street, the feeling of a city dream. And the light is gorgeous. 🙂


    1. I agree – that morning light is lovely for photography, contemplation and easing into the day. So often I fall asleep at 4:00AM, only to wake up at 9:00 or 10:00AM to brash light and a noisy world already in high gear.
      One of these days, I might just change my ways …
