If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have enjoyed every minute I’ve spent with you learning about your world, no matter where it may be. Showing me what you see through your eyes and experiencing life through your lens is inspiring and curious to me. Seeing your pictures of flowers and nature and people engaged in life nurtures my soul Thank you for being you and being your contribution. And then I’d ask, what will you do today to LIVE OUT LOUD?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I loved the movie “Begin Again.” And though I don’t care for senseless use of certain words, the story was full of poetic moments like the romantic relationship & even the breaking up and hardships because it was the human experience in all its glory..and it is romantic, and the music adds an element of magic because it is weaved so well into the story. My husband, who isn’t usually a fan of music in movies or musicals, really liked the movie. (Not just a little bit) AND, he wanted to buy the soundtrack because Kiera Knightly did such a good job. I think that’s another reason I like the movie because Kiera Knightly and Adam Levine both pursued other passions in their lives not knowing exactly how the world would accept their attempts…they just went for it. Kiera’s voice is amazing, and the lilt is calming and dreamy. If you don’t want to see the movie, you might like the soundtrack a lot. Spotify lets you get just the songs you want. :0)
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that though I have to go back to school in two weeks, and I will miss my summer terribly, for I do love my sunshine and my time to create and to just be. But that I’m always excited for new little discoveries with a new group of kids. It never ceases to amaze me what beauty I will find and the delight in observing their curiosities and inquisitiveness. (I wasn’t really sure that was a word but I didn’t get redlined.) And I would say that I am truly blessed to have this job. AND it’s also a blessing to know such AMAZING teachers and collaborate with them.
If we were having coffee, I might ask you what books you’ve read lately. I’ve read more this summer than usual, but the book I enjoyed the most was “The Light Between Two Oceans” because the characters were so well developed and I was engaged with them to the end. It really mattered to me what happened to those characters. (Now, that’s a GREAT book!) Bonus: I got to learn about lighthouses.
If we were having coffee, I would say that it’s really, really cool that I now get to add a coffee talk tab to my categories because I LOVE coffee and friends!
I got this idea from Suzie’s blog who got it from Nerd in the Brain‘s blog, who in turn saw it on the equally fabulous Part Time Monster‘s blog, who found it somewhere else. As Suzie said so well, the blogging community inspires me!
IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE, WHAT WOULD YOU TELL ME ABOUT?
Have a most blessed day,
Until we chat again, Marie
Have a most blessed day.

Aww Rosy…thank you! I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was thirty because our office was sooooo cold, and it was the only way I could stay warm…and then me and my guy would go to the coffee shop and talk on Saturdays…now it’s my favorite; like you said, a great way to be with my peeps… Blessings back to you!
You could always say if you and I were having ______, water with lemon, tea, Kool-Aid….what would you say? Namaste, Marie
