Inner value …

We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about. (Joseph Campbell)

I don’t know about you, but finding a coffee house that serves a good cup of espresso in variation (accompanied by a baked treat) is one of my joys.  Here on Queen W. in TorontoIMG_20151022_152106

“Coffee is a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.”  Gertrude Stein, Select Writings
