What makes you comfortable? Simple pleasures make all the different.


Comfort


 

Coffee is a warm friend,
even when you are not.
It clears my mind...
after you confuse it.
Sometimes I wonder how many great thoughts
were conceived over a cup of coffee.

Does that seem funny?
it shouldn't.
Not if you know me...
I'm a little different.

Some people talk to other people
Some people talk to animals
Some people talk to themselves...
I talk to coffee...sort of.

Partly because it's warm
Partly because it tastes good
But mostly...
Because I can make it myself,
And because it's one of the few things I can do alone.
