My Own Coffee Obsession
It seems to be a phenom for me to get back into the flow, after some hiatus, with a rush of different pursuits.

depressed about them today) are your guides -- valuable, reliable, objective,
non-judgemental guides -- to matters you need to reconsider or develop
further.” David Bayles and Ted Orland
