Coffee Log, Year 2, Day 113

Hi.

Coffee: Light Roast, Trader Joe’s Brand

I’ll keep it short tonight. I’ve been under the weather. Thinking about it a little, we’re all – always – under the weather, since weather’s in the sky, and… well, you get it. Idioms are interesting. Whether they make much sense, that’s another story.

Here’s what I’ve got: I was in a restaurant called Bosphorus that had Turkish owners. The walls were white and curtains blue. They had an open kitchen and it seemed like a family establishment. We got olive oil with herbs and spices, they brought complimentary tea. The tea came in glass cups with blue and white eyes. They looked like the eyes of Naxos, trinkets I was told a long time ago are good luck charms. Maybe there’s a connection. Maybe there isn’t.

We could all use some good luck. Here’s me wishing it for all of you.
