I am amazed at the power
found in coffee. Those small,
ground beans have been the motivational
source for many late
nights and early mornings.
I can only imagine the great
music that has been composed
with an aromatic cup of coffee
within arms reach of the composer.
He or she would mull over
the piano keys, stop to refl ect on
the notes accomplished and take
a sip of coffee.
Novels make the New York
Times best sellers list after
months and months of hard
work from the author. However,
the cup of black coffee gets no
credit for the support given during
those many hours of writing.
In fact, there were probably multiple
pots that stayed by the authors
side while human support
had gone on to bed.
