I need to get with the program, haven’t update my site for a while. The new Newport shop is taking a lot of my time and energy. In a totally good way.

An excuse to drag up a file from the archives.


Coffee is real good when you drink it gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.
