sunday morning coffee

A peacock who sits on its tail feathers is just another turkey.

Dolly Parton

A lot of my tail feathers have fallen out over the years. That happens. I have reached the age where I am painfully aware of my mortality. It's a strange phenomenon.

Every turkey should have a Thanksgiving Day--one way or the other.

This coffee art is just stunning. Where'd you get this purty swan? I too, am more and more aware of my mortality -- somehow (thankfully) I find it soothing and liberating. I don't like the physical discomfort I'm experiencing through aging, yet the psychological gifts and emotional perspectives gained are (mostly) wonderful. Less attachment, less intensity. less fear. More spaciousness, more acceptance, more peace and quiet.

The only thing those tail feathers are really useful for is attracting the opposite sex, anyway. You've got better things to do...such as enjoying your coffee.

Wow, great picture. I love what Kario said. And Dolly was talking about hiding your light - yours just isn't in the form of feathers.

I'm breathless with the image, the artistry, the quote, the comments. Such wisdom in you and your friends, such joy that you/they share it with all of us.

Then there's the part of me that wanted to ask, facetiously, Does this mean your goose is cooked? ; )

I heart that coffee.

giving thanks, for every moment.

we should be aware of our mortality, at all times. tomorrow is promised to no one.
