I’m not a coffee purist so just stick that yummy caramel stuff in my coffee please!!! I was never a coffee drinker until I was introduced and seduced by the caramel cappuccino. I have no shame, non what’s so ever. I don’t care, it’s what I like and I’ll get it every time.
However when it comes to chocolate, I am a chocolate snob. I once again have no shame in admitting that to anyone. I announce it proudly and boldly, dark it needs to be don’t give me that milky watered down stuff. I wont get through it. it’s not for me.
I’m no photography purist either, I’m not missing the dark room. hey isn’t digital a treat. But I am a literary snob, don’t give me an abridge version of a book!! huh, my intelligence has just had a great big swipe!!!!!
So what am I trying to say?? sometimes I can be the biggest snob and other times I’m just no purist at all!!!!!
For a year now I’ve been taking my journal to two different cafe’s and journaling. This has been a wonderful and fulfilling experience. I drop my Son of at pre-school take myself to the designated cafe armed with vintage style apparatus; a pen and vintage style dashboard; a diary with paper with lines. I then begin to write down my thoughts with the ease that it’s not going on facebook for the world (or just my friends) to see.
It all started the day I organised for my Mum’s ashes to be placed in the Crematorium. Once I’d had that moment, which by the way was special, I took myself to Gloria Jeans for a caramel cappuccino. While I was there I pulled out my $2 journal and began to write. I wrote and I continued to write to this day, I wrote all my angst and painful stuff concerning the passing of my mum. this was so liberating and continues to be. I always look forward to it each week and I have become a known regular to both cafe’s.
To be honest I’d be a regular regardless of my journaling ways because to do love a sit down chino time, but the pleasure of journaling in that context is brilliant. It’s something that I’d recommend for all to have a try. Go on just give it ago and tell me how good it feels to partake. It makes me wonder should I start a movement??????
