Last night while I was utterly bored, I decided to snap some self-portraits. I slapped on some heavier makeup, turned on some Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, and Aerosmith, and started playing. I was actually shocked by the images that came out! It was like all my past lives were revealed. It was neat, fun, and exciting. It’s weird what my creative spurts, mind, and good music can do.

Once again, my steaming cup of java and I, are met with early morning showers. It’s alright. I love rain. There’s a simplicity that’s beautiful about rain. Anyhow, I hope everyone’s enjoying Father’s Day. I’m off to visit my Daddy!
Coffee and Chicory
Today’s coffee pick is a New Orleans classic Coffee and Chicory. When I first moved here, I was perplexed. Chicory? I tried it and it’s pretty tastey. I love the Community Coffee House’s blend. It’s Arabica beans and high quality chicory . “The bittersweet richness of chicory lends itself to a heavier-bodied coffee that has become a New Orleans favorite. Made with 100% Arabica premium and specialty coffee beans.” It was brought to the states during the Civil War by the French. They found that when brewed, it gave the coffee an almost chocolate flavor and lessens the bitter edge of coffee! Go, try it for yourself!
