Good morning William,just in time to drink my coffie as I just got myself to the point to sit and injoy my cup of dayly wisdom and with whom else better to share it than with you.Interesting story inside of your cup, :O)
Im very tired,withouth heating and that travelling between twoo places which are non of to call mine,getting slowly to the point of peace with in myself and what is happening to me in the proces getting to it.I would love to be able to paint more but I believe those times are coming(I have to,otherwise dunno how to walk from here)!
Whish you and yours a wonderful day,beautiful photo,ciao!

Thank you, Nazia! Yes, my fortune is recorded on that index card.

Good morning, Aleksandra, but it must be afternoon or evening by now where you are. I know exactly what you mean, and I wish I could blow a little warmth your way.

Ah, for a demitasse of Greek coffee, brought slowly--the slower the better--ALMOST to boiling point in a briki* heated by hot sand!!

*small long-handled open vessel holding at most two demitasses of Greek coffee

William Michaelian said...

Zorba, my dear friend, perhaps one day soon I will take a picture of the vessel I used here, sans sand.

The cup, your book of poetry and your wonderful self portraits that change constantly in subtle ways, are such a testimony to your craft.

I love the autobiographical statement in this image, so understated and yet paradoxically so vivid.

Elisabeth, I’m touched by your kind assessment. Thank you.
