Argyle at a Close


You're no longer my home,
the keys were turned in this afternoon.
Yet another chapter closed.

Farewell, lil' bachelor.

Now, to what...

Espresso-Based



It's been nine days since I've been
On Bar, and I miss it.

given, it was a love-hate relationship.
Love and obsession of coffee, the Art of pulling an espresso shot,
along with the process of preparing drinks.

Hate of a million hounding, complaining, and demanding people on your back.
Inevitably destroying the process purely by you being over worked.
Or as I used to call it,
The Cluster Fuck of Espresso.

*Rule of Thumb, unless you're at an ick-starbucks, in Europe, or the espresso bar is automated...
if your latte gets pumped out in two seconds flat, the quality of the bean/milk will be crap.
aka:
burnt/incorrectly stretched milk, incorrectly pulled/bitter espresso etc.

Okay, Rant Over!

Shot of the Day

Cowboy - ca. 1890

My Love of the West will never Die.

Past to Present


'According to folklore, the doll is thought to worry in the person's place,
thereby permitting the person to sleep peacefully.
The person will wake up without their worries,
which have been taken away by the dolls during the night.'

When I was a Child, my mother had me use Worry Dolls quite often.
My belief in their power was wholehearted.
I cherished those little figures.

Even now, I must tease my sleepless nights.

This Very Moment


'A stairway to nowhere! I think that's just elegant.'

Open door and windows, cup of coffee,
and a favorite Summer flick...
The Seven Year Itch.

Start Fresh



The track for my 24th.

Art Deco


Last night we wined, dined and danced at
It was beyond marvelous.
Once again, I was born in the wrong era.

Inspiration Station

I'm compiling an inspiration folder for my year 24.
Images to inspire, to motivate, to keep in mind.
For once on the 21st, I will celebrate myself.
this year will be different.

Ancient History




Daily writings have been absolutely necessary.

The decision to leave my apartment and job has been a major emotional disruptor.
(obviously)
My constant dribble of regrets, anxiety, fear, bewilderment, tears, and foul disposition
has physically and emotionally drained me this past week.
Now it Must stop.
the grieving is over, it is what it is.
Now, to take pride in my choice for
Change.

This Very Moment


I'm sitting on the side terrace,
clinging to the pouring light.
i've taken action,
now's the time to be confident in my decisions.
