The Fear Factor

“When I hear people talk about a fear of failing, I get so tired. You think you’re afraid of failing, but in fact you’re doing it now. Let’s talk about your fear of succeeding.”

Make Friends with Fear.

“If you’re afraid of something, face it…The only way to conquer your fear is to stand next to it.” -Jennifer Armintrout

Horse and Bucky

This special moment between my fifteen pound hero, and the beautiful horse along our walk reminds me to have courage, and make friends with fear!

Dear Joe…

I wrote the poem featured below two years ago during my Creative Writing course, and wanted to share it again with my fellow bloggers! I was enjoying my delicious espresso beverage a few mornings ago, reminding me of my love and longing for all things Arabica. Savor!

Coffee

“Dear Joe”

Dear Joe, don’t go. I long for more.
Stay, your stain upon my lips, I beg…oh, please.
Every taste is a pleasure, like none before.
Morning after morning, my heart does soar.
Is it any wonder the night plays cruelest tease?
Dear Joe, don’t go. I long for more.
You and I bound together at our core.
A day without you, and I brim with endless unease.
Every taste is a pleasure, like none before.
Why fight, why resist your frothy pour?
Down, down, I drink your dark brewed seas.
Dear Joe, don’t go. I long for more.
Some might say I am your whore.
Your fluid ounces I greedily seize.
Every taste is a pleasure, like none before.
No life imaginable without your grind, nor
searing sips as these.
Dear Joe, don’t go. I long for more.
Every taste is a pleasure, like none before.
