#WeekendCoffeeShare Moving The Feast

February 11, 2017 , , , , ,

The movable feast known as weekend coffee share is itself on the move. Our gracious hostess Diana has arranged to hand off the coffee party action to Nerd in the Brain next weekend.  We will still be a band of writers bonding over digital beverages and stories on the weekend.  I am sure the move will not disrupt anyone. Thank you Diana, for finding us a new address to continue the party.  If we were having coffee today I would invite you to taste some of the bread I just brought home from Barrio Bread.  It is still warm, made from local grains, and crusty like crazy fire .  I just had a smoked mozzarella sandwich, grilled, with all the trimmings.  I can whip one up for you while you relax and tell me how you have been and what you have planned.  We are very proud of this bakery, and would love for you to try our local organic, totally groovy food products. Our city is a UNESCO culinary heritage city because of our deep agricultural traditions and knowledge. I love to show it off to tourists.

It is warm here, and the peach tree is budding out.  The grapefruit is still very full of fruit, although I am juicing like crazy.  I hope you will help yourself to a big glass of ruby red grapefruit juice, with or without whipped vodka, as you tell me about your writing this week.  Mine is rolling along, with the weekly photo prompt working for me very well. This week I wrote a short poem, still on the depressing side, a thinly veiled reference to current politics. The prompt picture was a fire, which gave lots of leeway.  I wrote about pants and vanities on fire, since I feel this is our current backdrop for news in the real world.  I plan to continue the once a week fiction with Sue Vincent’s prompts because it is inspirational to read all the other takes on the same picture.  I do want to write more fiction someday.  This is a good warm up for that day.  I like taking a break from just the facts.

I am enjoying my correspondence challenge #InCoWriMo more than I imagined I would.  I have gotten mail from several people I do not know, and a couple I know in on-line relationships.  It is a blast to both send and receive the snail mail.  Most of my pen pals have great penmanship and sealing wax, etc.  I admire it, but that is not what I have to offer. My correspondence has enclosures and a little bit of art.  My biggest advantage is all the cards and specialty paper I have collected around the world. I have started to enclose extra postcards so my pen pals can send them forward, and I get rid of twice as much collected choice paper. I also send a temporary tattoo and my biz card.  Today I mailed some hollyhock seeds to Kentucky to a perfect stranger…Perfect!!

I send or hand deliver more than one letter a day. I may get carried away with this and just keep mailing letters until all my paper is gone. It is so much fun, and I do have the supplies.  I am meeting people and getting such a thrill out of checking my mailbox every day.  I guess it is like riding a bike because I used to be a big letter writer, but not for many years.  If anyone in coffee share wants to receive mail from me in February please send me your snail mail address on this secure form.  I promise I have no reason to share it with anyone and will only use it to send you handwritten notes and surprise gifts from my exotic stash.

If we were having coffee today, I would recommend the grapefruit juice and invite you to stick around to go with us later to the local beer garden and metal arts village where there will be yoga with a DJ followed by live music, fire performers, stilts, acrobats on silk, and lots of hipsters.  We will rock the full snow moon in our summer clothing.  It is free and all in the hood.  Stay and soak up Tucson before you go back home. For those of you who want to read, write, or post this week visit Diana here. See you next week at Nerd on the Brain.  Cheers!

As much as I love grapefruit juice, I have to pass. It makes my heart flutter (must be the love…lol!). The sandwich sounds amazing, and the bread is making my mouth water. I was not able to join #InCoWriMo, but have it on my calendar for next year. In the meantime, I would love a letter and will use your form. I would love to go to the snow moon celebration with you. Let me see if I can find some summer clothing… 🙂

That bread looks delicious! Thanks for sharing that! Also, I love letters, too. I just sent my address. Going to check out #InCoWriMo, too.
Have a great week!

YAY! I’m looking forward to it. I wish I had known about the letter a day in Feb. earlier. Going to do it from now on and next year.

What a cool idea! I had a pen pal for years and then, well, email and stuff arrived and she no longer was interested. C’est la vie!
I hear too much grapefruit is not good for women – can you dispute this fact?

I can’t dispute the grapefruit rumors ..I feel great when I drink a lot of it. My last pen pal was in Brownie Scouts in the late 1950’s…so I know what you mean.

Hard to convince others of the joys of receiving a handwritten note!
Dang…was hoping you could dispute!

I think I would love your grapefruit tree! Fresh off the tree is insanely great. Love that you have these virtual “meet-ups”! It makes for some thoughtful ideas of what to do with “stuff”
