The last painting for January’s theme: Coffee & Tea.

It takes some mad skills to hold up a long legged bird with a coffee cup on it’s head while she misses her morning coffee. My goodness! I hope her day improves.

There was a time in my life when I wasn’t allowed coffee for health reasons. My best friend and I did coffee walks. This entailed sitting in Peet’s and smelling the coffee to somehow satisfy the urge. I’d like to tell you this worked, but it was absolutely miserable. My friend was very refined about it all. She could name the coffee flavors as they went into the cups. “Kona?” She’d say. Dizzy with stubborn anxiety I didn’t hear understand the question.

The next health practitioner I visited said to me, “You are one of those people coffee is actually good for.” I didn’t walk, I ran to the coffee grinder and never tried to get healthy in that way again.
