    Do the smells of coffee and spices inspire others?
    That is the question to contemplate for now.

    The thing about inspiration Lisa is that it is individual. I can not tell what others are inspired by when they use their olfactory sense hence the contemplation.;)

    Ok, fair enough, what does the smell of coffee inspire in you?

    The wisdom of the ages.:eek::p
    I think of the traditions for these drinks and how the elders made ceremonies out of them.

    Does that inspire you to continue the ceremonies then?

    Sometimes yes I do, but I contemplate more and I tend to reflect on my grandmother who has passed on.
    May she rest in the Creator's mercy:(. Okay bye for now.

    Sorry about your grandmother. Were you close to her? When my grandmother passed on I was pretty sad, but I was also bummed out that I wasn’t close to her and wished that I had been. She was always nice to me.

    I can't handle coffee. The anxiety is overwhelming.

    Hello!

    There have been studies showing that if you add Dutch cacao to coffee and drink 3-4 cups a day it lessens anxiety and leads to an average 4lbs of weight loss.

    Green tea, if I remember correctly, also helps increase insulin sensitivity and promote fat loss while retaining muscle.

    So the wife decided to work tonight, so I had a free night to myself. Two hours at the gym, came home and made myself a protein shake while the jacuzzi tube was filling up. After a nice soak in the Jacuzzi, I sat down in front of the piano and worshiped God for a while. Couldn't think of better way to spend an evening without my wife!

    I value opinions here more than any celebrity. They can shut their entitled traps up and go on living in their plastic world. While I still like following pop culture, I have lost so much respect for those who are a part of it. These award shows are like a sea of lost souls who have more than a few dirty little secrets. As their youth and fame fade, deeds will be realized in eternity.

    And while I am ranting. I hate all media news outlets and how they try to manipulate peoples thoughts. They just fan the flames non stop in an effort to divide. And they've done a good job as evidenced by the sampling on this board alone. It is hard not to get riled up when watching mainstream media in that it is designed to illicit emotion and again, split.

    Add social media to that as well even though I use it a lot with business.
