The Coffee Chronicles

Back to the Coffee

This is really where it all began. In 2001, I created a website and started writing columns. It was Pretty and me in an apartment in Maryland, searching for purpose and mercy. Well, I was searching for purpose and mercy; Pretty was searching for new napping places. Pretty now naps beyond the rainbow bridge. Me? Still searching. But I am getting closer to purpose, not so much the mercy.

As I relearn how to adjust my website, I am refocusing away from “An Odyssey Through Covid America.” It is still all here. You can find a link to all of the original material above.

Now? On to the next journey. I thought of titles but they all sound too dramatic to me. Into Darkness? Into the Halls of Midnight? Instead, for now, I’ll just use the working title of my next book. “Broken Thing: An Odyssey Into Depression.”

Murphy Got Me Again

This is difficult for me. Very difficult. I can offer help anywhere and anytime, even when I don't have it. Asking? It makes me...ugh. I'm in a bad spot. My spirits are up, but my butt and bank account are down and I am stranded in Tijuana with a fractured ankle. The...

Laugh or Cringe?

Hello Everybody. I know there are some who do not follow or have Facebook so I just thought I'd update you about a few new things on the website. First: the Video Companion to my book is finished! --unless my OCD kicks in and I start thinking about stringing...

Misadventures in Tijuana

Misadventures in Tijuana

If you don't have Facebook, you're missing out. I know some people who get these updates, though, aren't on Facebook so I thought I would add a few things. I've been hard at work on my book and podcast and they lend themselves to darker posts. On Facebook and...
