...a blog is knowing that many others exist which are vastly superior to one's own in content, style, and social value.
However, in the spirit of my wiser half's long-running musings on tea and my younger sister's reflections on gastronomy, I will try my hand at exploring why I love coffee.
To all potential readers, please accept this brief message as a comprehensive disclaimer that I do not intend to pretend (not even when I am secretly pleased with what I know or have just discovered) that I am an expert about coffee. I already try to cultivate several professional areas of expertise, so I just want to relax and enjoy the experience of divulging my thoughts about coffee, and of equal importance, how my views on (fill in the blank, but always "human") culture arise from some contact with coffee. That said, I do not wish to mislead anyone into believing that coffee is a suitable, creativity-inducing drug. Caffeine, as we all know, is addictive and pleasurable, but I will write my blog entries when I am "sober" (several hours after my last cup of the day). Therefore, what you are reading here is all me, not the coffee talking.
I won't write every day (work, home, and other concerns intervene) but when I do, I promise to do my best to make it worth your while to read the given entry.
