The humble cup. I was going to write an ode to the beauty and invention that is everything that is a cup, but I found that my words did not honour the humble cup in a truly deserving way.
But think of everything that is a cup. Imagine having a cup of coffee without a cup. Would we sip out of a saucer a little at a time with liquid cooling as fast as we could drink? Ridiculous. You can cup water in your hands to drink, but hot coffee would just be terrible.
And the handle. Keeps even my hands from burning as I sip from the cup. It's really a marvel I think that I have not appreciated for most of my life. Just taking for granted how easily I can enjoy my morning Joe because of the cups in almost everyone's cupboard. Sometimes I don't even have the effort required to boil water and make my cup as I get handed a fresh cup of coffee a la David. Thanks love.
There are probably a million things that I take for granted in my comfortable life. A million comforts that make my life so easy and luxurious. I am so lucky and I never ever complain that I am too hot or too cold or I am bored of what I am doing. Ha. I so wish I could say that I enjoy my moments and don't winge like an ungrateful child. To be fair, I am more likely to worry and stress over people than temperature or boredom. Whether they are happy, whether I have said something stupid that has made someone sad.
but in reality there really is very little to be sad about in my life. Nothing is ever perfect and nothing is ever without struggle, but I think for the most part I am a very lucky human with my cup.
Today I wish for you happiness and a cup.
