Love and coffee go hand in hand

Ah!  Coffee -- an appropriate topic for tonight because this
evening I met with a bunch of women in the neighbourhood
who I've known since my children were very little.  It's a long
and powerful connection fueled by coffee (and tea) and tonight
wine.  The group creates friendships, supports each other's interests,
discusses everything from politics, to culture, to art, to volunteering,
to child raising -- and is wonderful.

I started a new painting today -- quite large, and will not
have anything to show you for a few days.  But for at least
the past three years I've posted every day in the Month of
Love, February and had to continue the tradition.  I mean
love is that important. So I was excited to find this little painting
of a Red-winged Blackbird on a coffee cup.  I do love both
the bird, and the delicious coffee he is guarding.

One of the first and most joyous signs of spring when we
walk in our local park is the sound of blackbirds singing.
Woah!  Our hearts lift.  This is it my friends -- spring!
We aren't quite there yet, but soon.  Meanwhile have a
coffee with some friends, and have fun.

Have a singing for your coffee day.
