Man: 3am … Pre Snow Blow

(This post …written in a spiral, 04/23/13 @ 3am)

Man: mysterious, brilliant, irrational, practical, calm, handsome (based on perception), and the list goes on and on.  I look out the sliding glass door, into the darkness pierced by white snow; it looks like about 6″.  Man, at it again: insomniating, ink rides paper, attempting (its futile) to contain the overwhelming excitement of the moment.  (Pause) … (Heavier pause) … (An even heavier pause) 

‘Cannot sleep, pondering a profound and piercing question that make writers pensive: “But, how much snow will we get and (as psychotherapists like to ask) how does that make me feel?” 

Kitchen-bound.  Refridgerator.  Two different kinds of cheese dip, recently acquired and unopened.  I break a rule: I open both of them.  With rectangular crackers, I alternate dipping between the two.  I know this is wrong, but I’ll deal with the consequences later.  After all: I’m a wilder man.

This is a Krups "Vivo F880" espresso...
This is a Krups “Vivo F880” espresso maker. It’s cleverly designed from a usability perspective, but it broke/wore out after about a year, just like most of my espresso machines do. This photo is edited to show a white background, since I didn’t have a more natural background available to put it on. Some edits were performed by Keysignal (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I turn on the espresso machine, and experience visions of grandeur as I consider the amazing coffee that will be flow from this small inconspicuous machine.   I will be able to do a cup of Mud, and then go back to sleep.  This does not make sense.  How can I drink coffee at 3am and then go back to bed?  The phenomenon is profound to the point that I freeze every muscle in my body, staring toward a window.  The pen is motionless.  Time has been suspended.  At some point I slowly emerge from the catatonic state.  I am able to surrender such a complex issue, and the pen starts moving again.  I know that coffee is imminent, unavoidably imminent; just as the snow-blowing is imminent, unavoidably imminent.

But the snow-blowing can wait until daylight.

Not so, for the coffee.
