Reflections of Reggie the Egyptian Rescue Dog: The Benefits of Coffee

“Many people do not feel that they can get through the day, or even the morning, without a cup of coffee (or two or three). Having a cup of coffee becomes a way of taking care of yourself, a way of stopping, a way of connecting with others or with yourself. It has its own beauty, its own inner logic, its own culture, and in moderation it can be very effective at helping you pace yourself as you face the demands of the day. Such daily rituals can deepen a sense of pausing to take in the moment. “

Hello there. I am Reggie the Egyptian Rescue Dog and you can read about my exploits in this blog. I like this quote but it discriminates against tea drinkers like myself. I eat my morning kibble but Master Bob always gives me and my best friend Dillie the Westie a bit of organic jasmine tea and a bit of toast or bagel. My day does require this ritual. Without it I feel something is lacking!
