I Want to Drink Coffee

I want to write like Robert Frost, while I hold a mug. For all the world to admire and analyze my words.  Words born of moments. Moments of solitude, of cherishing love. Love reminds me of coffee. 

Sitting wrapped in the mountains, waking from the morning while I sip a fresh brew. I aspire to imagine like Beatrix Potter, sometimes I get a taste…a taste of coffee reminding me of an energizing spirit and happy clothed animals. 

I have made improvements on CS Lewis.  Oh yes, that is true.  Because when he said, “You can never get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me,” he must have meant coffee. I would never make a typo like that. 

I want to write like the great authors of old, to publish books, sign copies, change the world through my words. It is my dream, my passion, my love. Writing is the art of my mind, my breath, my heartbeat.  I love to put pen to paper….but even more, I love to drink coffee.

  2. If you dream it, you can be it. If you speak it, you can do it. If you do it, you will will need a new dream ;)! I’ve also aspired to live tucked away in beauty and earning income doing so- writing, painting… Good luck to you. Don’t give up!

  3. Caroline, you know I am a great fan. I have expressed that many times. However, as nice as a good cup of Java can be first thing in the morning, my writing skills are greatly enhanced by McAlister’s Sweeeeeeeeeettttt Tea! Therefore, Mr. Lewis was correct. I rest my case πŸ™‚

  4. Yes! My friends call me an old soul. I’ll find the the room in the house with the most sun grab a chair my laptop or pen and paper, and a cup of coffee. I would open the blinds just enough so that the sunlight would break into a striped pattern where I was sitting. I would then sit down with soft instrumental music in the background and listen for God to give me the words to write.

  6. I loooooooove my cuppa! Being a migrant to Australia I discovered the art of coffee here. Just think, 33 years without the knowledge of long blacks, flat whites, black vienna’s and mocha’s. Come to think of it, my coffee cup is empty, time to go for a refill. Thank you, I do enjoy your writings:)

  7. Coffee is my favorite vegetable. (coffee beans = vegetable…right?) Your words on this post echo many of the same thoughts I have.. The only substitute I would make for me is In Robert Frost’s place I would substitute Robert Fulghum..:-) I too have a couple of books that have been published. One of my ongoing struggles w/ the the books is knowing how to promote them w/o feeling like I am tooting my own horn…have you ever wrestled with those kind of thoughts and if so, what do you tell yourself?

    • β˜•οΈvegetable. I like that. In that case, I get many many servings of veggies in a day 😊

      Tooting my own horn…ummm yeah, sometimes. I have to admit that I have not done that much promotion. I purposely did not go with certain publishers bc they wanted me setting up local promotions and I just didn’t want to go there. I really only promote online. And as far as that goes, I really believe in what I write so I can toot horns without being fake. If you love and believe in what you write, toot away! Others need to read it! 😊
