Coffee Log, Year 2, Day 279


Coffee: Maxwell House Master Blend, Office Coffee

I spent the night wrapping packages. I used local paper, recycled, it came from old dishcloths. There wasn’t much of it. It was hard to cut. I imagined wet hands. I liked that – having a history, something human, a bit of color. It made the gifts seem well taken care of in their tight-packed wrapping.

That’s really it for me today – thinking about giving, and what I’ve been given to get here. It all ends up in beautiful pink paper, even if it wasn’t so beautiful all the way down the line.

If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.
