My mild taste for coffee turned into a full blown addiction. My nervous system needed the stimulant to function. I needed the caffeine because of the benefits of improved alertness, concentration, energy, clear-headedness, and feelings of sociability that it kindled. I was long past the person who needed a cup of coffee in the morning,… Continue reading A Writing Sparkle Coffee Memoir

This morning I have spent more time sighing into my coffee then anything else. I’m exhausted this morning.
