saturday shopping list - october 9th

"i have come to a still, but not a deep center,
a point outside the glittering current;
my eyes stare at the bottom of a river,
at the irregular stones, iridescent sandgrains,
my mind moves in more than one place,
in a country half-land, half-water.
i am renewed by death, thought of my death,
the dry scent of a dying garden in september,
the wind fanning the ash of a low fire.
what i love is near at hand,
always, in earth and air."

~ theodore roethke, 'the far field'

p.s. i had to buy one of those 'i heart coffee' prints by michelemaule... because i really do heart coffee in a passionate way.  is it bad that my first thought in the morning, the one which pulls me from my bed, is usually of my french press?  are my priorities off in some way?

happy saturday
