Pay Attention to Your Coffee
If you buy a good cup of coffee and pour milk into it slowly the milk will sit just below the surface. You will barely be able to tell that it is there, except for a few milky wisps reaching upwards.
Blow across the top to cool it down, however, and the ripples on the surface will churn up the milk below. It will bloom into gentle clouds and rise upwards, expanding until it suffuses the whole cup.
There’s not really a lesson here. But, over the last few months, I have started paying keen attention to the world around me and there is a lot of beauty in such small details. Of course ripples go through the whole cup. How busy must I have been, to miss that?
