The passage of time

With trees, we count and analyze the rings to determine the age, identify seasons of drought and years of tremendous growth.

With me, I'm thinking it's t-shirts at the top or back of the closet. Shirts from road races and track meets. From concerts, albums and music festivals. Professional sports teams. Vacation spots. Political parties.

Can you get close to understanding the psychology of someone by looking through their collection of t-shirts? Maybe a Gen X thing?

For the record, I never had a "Choose Life" or "Frankie Says Relax" t-shirt.

Coffee Philosophy

I make espresso and lattes (instead of drip) after dinner for the same reason a bartender would rather make an Old Fashioned, a Caesar, a Martini, or even pour a Guinness than serve a bottled beer. It allows one to display their craft AND connect with the guest for several minutes during preparation. That ain't so bad, is it?
