Those clever baristas

As well as giving us our daily lattes and long blacks — with a smile and good humour to boot — clever baristas at various favourite coffee-spots are displaying their artistic flair. I’ve heard of real coffee masterpieces passing into barista legend. This is far more modest, but still a pleasing aesthetic sight to behold. Aaah, the things you can do with froth … The picture quality is very mediocre as it is a digital camera shot of an image I took from my phone … didn’t have the camera-phone accoutrement thingy handy. This one was in Brisbane at the cafe-bar downstairs from Rydges I think (was travelling and forget the name of the joint, will come back and insert):

    The people up in Portland are absolutely insane about coffee, and on the cover of the Willamette Week journal a couple of months ago there was a picture of a cup of coffee topped with a frothy depiction of a cross-section of a coffee bean. Pretty outré!

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
