Tuesday's Mental Musings
This weekend I used a sock to make coffee. A coffee sock is a cloth strainer attached to a hoop with a wooden handle. It is filled with ground coffee, placed over a carafe and water is strained through. Making coffee this way is simple, fast and extremely inexpensive when compared to other methods of making coffee. While making my coffee all I could think about was how I wished life were this direct and simple. I know we choose to make our lives complex but even simplifying it requires work and effort that is often more intense than just allowing yourself to be sweep away in the drama and designs of those around you. Wouldn't it be great if we could just put all those things we know we must dissolve from our day to day into a white mesh, pour our determination and desire over and through it all knowing the end result would be the best and boldest of things worth keeping in our lives? Of course adding the warmed froth milk and sugar would make things more complex but that's another Tuesday's ponder.
