let me tell you about my love affair with mr Joe;
the crush started, long before I ever had my first sip,
with an aroma coming from the roastery of my childhood town.
a scent of freshly ground coffee filling the air,
filling my nostrils & filling my soul.
settling there, safely waiting.
until I was sixteen and smitten.
an infatuation that never since ceased to exist,
at times taken in different shapes and forms.
sometimes changing with the season and the mood.
but always faithfully there.
I am head over heels with my java on the rocks.
and we ask ourselves;
~is this really healthy?
well my dear, like all love stories;
~ it's complicated.
it has it's magic benefits;
boosting our energy with caffeine,
filling us up with healthy antioxidants, manganese,
magnesium, potassium, niacin, vitamin B2 and B5.
and as for the complicated bits...
lets leave that aside. for now.
because today I want to think of love this way,
Stay hungry Stay soulfullish'
