@courtney4_24 says I’ve put too much #coffee stuff in the kitchen so I’ve moved on to the bedroom.
Thanks @chroniclecoffeeco for the bag.

Last week I was at a local music venue, Off Broadway listening to Otis Gibbs. An Americana artist from Indiana.
He was putting on a great show but it took a new spin for me as I began to look around at the audience. He was singing songs about struggle in the country and hard times. I could see how much it was resonating with my fellow listeners.
It struck me that to many of these people, this was more than just a song, it was their story.
A great reminder to me of how much emotion and weight a song can carry.
My #coffee situation is clearly out of control.

A dynamite interview that I’d recommend for everyone.
I continue to be impressed by esquire magazine. I’m relatively new to the publication but in spite of sometimes obnoxious or extremely provocative covers a lot of the editorial pieces are sharp as hell.
Scott Rahb’s section, ESQ&A is fun and the immediate past issue in which he interviews Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater is great! The whole piece is worth reading but there is a point (see above) where Linklater respond to a question from Rahb about being “self taught” to which Linklater takes issue.
Just another way of pointing out that pedigree isn’t required. A lot of times its just our way or proving we are worthy as opposed to just going out and doing it without ‘asking permission.”
A man down the hall from my office is packing his up for the last time. He is retiring.
He showed me his office once and a picture of his involvement in building The Arch… and standing on-top-of it!
As I think about this, I’m reminded that I’m taking “my arch pictures” at this stage of life. One day I will be the one retiring and looking back.
A reminder to chase what you love because life is fleeting and comes with no do-overs or take backs. Go get it!
