Sensibility is Overrated

I woke this morning to the dog licking my face demanding her latte (yes my dog LOVES lattes, caps and the occasional Italian Macchiato!…..Why do you think she looks waaaay too young for a 13 years old?! It’s the good coffee of course.

As I was now having my coffee with the dog, contemplating an ‘easier’ day, the fuzzy cute little tiny bird that lives in my head chirped in its tranquil little voice!

“Treat yourself today! Take it a little easier”.

I smiled…sighed and said “ok”.

The tiny fuzzy bird ‘of wisdom’ in my head_ yes it’s quite tiny at times, its continual survival surprises me_ is now flying on a mission to fetch breakfast, thinking it had convinced me to take it easy today and to just…recline and laze the day away…

The ‘other’ _much bigger in size_ creature that lives in my head, a red silly fox, gestured at the bird, while rubbing its chin…and muttering

“Ugh!!! How pathetically impulsive!!…..Bird sees a disgusting slimy wiggly..thing! And immediately loses its mind! pitiful!!!”

Then as if it accidentally just realized I’m there..I heard it say “heeeeeey……..well you’re looking relaxed!😁’s it going this morning?!”

I responded “well fox, I am taking it easy today! I’m going to just..chill!”

As I reclined back into my chair, the ‘annoying complaisant worm-breath’ little bird flew back into the room heading to settle again into my head, and the fox?! Ate it!!!!

So I had to get busy, silly, and mischievous! And I set out to sing out loud, while chopping out wood in the forest..scaring all the squirrels, the birds, the wolf and the random bear..away

These voices in my head, were inspired by my absolute fave Jeep ad. It’s an old ad but I still love it

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!

  1. Listen to the birds, never listen to the fox. Well, sometimes listen to the fox otherwise we’ll just be doing what birds tell us all the time, and that (as they say) is for the birds. Today, I think, I’ll stain the deck. Won’t the fox be proud!

    1. Agree. Absolutely most certainly undeniably..that’ll be for the birds if we do!

      Enjoy staining the deck. Fox approves. As long as (he says) you play your music loud and have a blast…

  2. You did it again, I laughed while reading the first paragraph!

    No warm fuzzy birds or red foxes in my head, just an extinct dodo bird, and a five-hundred pound gorilla, who beats me up if I don’t do as he says!;-)

    I love the fact that your dog loves coffee beverages. Too funny!

    Thanks again, Kat, for making me laugh!

        1. Anytime..🙂

          What’s it like in Germany today?

          It’s peaceful here. We live on a acreage that backs onto a natural reserve land. No signs of Covid, or ..humans around. Just nature, my chocolate Labrador, lots of birds, some owls at night, flocks of overly trusting deer, moose, lynx, bobcats, foxes and hiding mountain

          1. I don’t know what it’s like in Germany today? But in Ohio, it’s hot and humid!;-) And although I have lived elsewhere throughout the years, I always end up back here in Ohio.

            You thought I was in Germany? I wish I were in Germany. I’m half German on my mother’s side. She was second generation American.

            I did get to Germany once, when I was in college, way back when. Germany was beautiful, and so were the Germans, just like my dear old ma.

            Sorry, if I gave that impression.

            It sounds peaceful there,. Kat! My parents lived near a forest, many years ago, when I was in college. I spent many hours in that forest. I loved it, it was beautiful and pure peace.

            1. No idea where I got Germany from! Must be my interminable imagination!

              Sorry, if I interpreted wrong 🙂

              Ohio. Never been. Been to many States but not Ohio.

              Hot and humid is what I was accustomed to in Cyprus growing up on the beach! Before leaving at 17. I actually prefer hot and humid. To this day. Strange, but can’t change that part! It’s in me

              I do love Germany too. My sister is there. But then I love Europe, in general. Life has a taste there. Cafés, people watching and the best espressos.

              Glad you have great memories of your mother! Sounds ..wonderful!

              The around here is wonderful yes! But I can’t seem to shake the city out of me!
              I spent a lot of years in Toronto. Toronto is home. And will always be.

              People around here ‘in The West where I’ve resided for 12 years now! Dislike Toronto quite a bit! And that’s ok. It doesn’t affect how I feel abt my city.

            2. Maybe it was my mother coming through?;-)

              No problem.

              It’s early for the heat and humidity here. This is late July, August weather. But who can count on the weather anymore?

              Yes. Europe, for me, was like being on another planet, a wonderful, beautiful planet. I was in Germany, France and Switzerland in 1978. And I hated to come back. I fell in love with the countries and the people.

              It’s strange how countries are divided by east and west, isn’t it? I’ve lived in California,Maryland and Tennessee, and each place has its own view of the rest of the country.

              I’ve been to Canada twice, once when I was a child, and twenty years ago, I spent a few days at Niagra Falls

            3. Maybe! Won’t that be far more exciting than all the now completely unexciting virus life, and days..!!! Spirits can be gentler than actual moving about, austere, acrimonious…humans.

              Fascinating! Your description of Europe, is, marvellous! And accurate!!

              Yes, it’s strange the division in most countries. And a little bit boring as it seems every country does it.
