738. rainy day latte

Ken Newton, Nevada City, CA.

Our first winter storm system is approaching, dropping down from Alaska for a brief ‘hello’.The mid-afternoon air is turning sharper as the wind grows colder, grey skies etched with blue this morning are now deeper, darker.  I have a brief window before moving on this day and meet a friend at Valentina’s, lattes beckon.  We chat as the rain begins, hands warming to the cups, hearts warming too; there will be snow in the morning. . . . . . and another latte will beckon.”

737. not addicted

Tonya Russ Price, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Just because I use a wooden stirrer for a bookmark doesn’t mean I have an addiction. I can stop at anytime.”

Tonya, that’s what I tell myself, too. Except no one believes me. So I think we should both just keep on keeping on.

Tonya is a wedding photographer with two blogs, Poprock Photography (weddings) and Biscuit Fan Club (food).

732. coffee for the occupation

Steve, Kate and I walked over to Occupy UCDavis today. It was quiet, just a few people, but plenty of tents. Lots of food, a few signs….and coffee. We stayed and talked to a few people, and tried to figure out what it meant to each of us.
