For your next story

I had an entry I'd planned to do, but I can't actually do it just yet, so have some pictures, instead. They're from a cafe a few towns over.

Here are the sacks of coffee and the roaster.

And here is a chest of drawers for putting (we think) Chinese medicines in--reminds me of the wall of drawers behind Kamaji in Spirited Away, that contained different healing bath additives. (Maybe now it's used to hold tea?)

(Here are Sen/Chihiro and Kamaji, with the wall of drawers--oh, and also Haku)

And here is the tin ceiling. So fancy!

... Surely exciting things happen here. Spies or lovers have meetings. Dissidents find under-the-radar employment. The sparrows that hang about are very intellectual--like in the Duolingo sentence I got today: "pájaros leen el diario"--they read the newspaper.

I am not yet capable, without Google Translate, of formulating the reply I'd want to make, something along the lines of, Quiero la intelligensia (?? I'm making up that word) dos rios (???) ... yes, despite Duolingo's promise that I'm now! 15 percent! fluent in Spanish, I have my doubts.

Me gustaria tambien la inteligencia de los rios!

Er, Estos pajaros.

The coffee roaster reminds me of C-3PO and the bags of coffee R2-D2.
I expect they got up and walked off as soon as you shot this.

Haha--I see it the other way, with the bags of coffee being golden C-3PO and the roaster being rounded R2-D2! Either way, good friends.

Totally a place for stories.

Little Springtime suggested a parent-child excursion there. Recently the healing angel has announced that he may write stories for his Skyrim characters, so I'm thinking we should all go there and write. We can bring wakanomori along--he has many projects he can work on there!

Excellent idea!

That coffee place reminds me so much of a coffee place in the town where my grandparents used to live. I will be passing through there next week and will stop in and take a few pictures to compare.

Yes! I'll have to prowl your blog to see.

I can smell the coffee in that first one! :o)
Jun. 20th, 2016 09:47 pm (UTC)
It was delicious--I'm not much judge, but even Wakanomori thought so, and he's more of a connoisseur.

I really like the pressed metal ceiling; if there's plot and intrigue happening, it might be that the design of torches is a coded affirmation that this house is part of the Movement - has been for decades!
Unknown to most of the clientele, behind the sacks of coffee....
Jun. 20th, 2016 09:48 pm (UTC)
Yes, maybe the imagery is special to the Movement somehow!

Oh that roaster yanked me right back to my childhood. I can almost smell the coffee beans. :)

Where did you run into a big roaster in childhood? Did your family have a cafe? Or was there one you often visited?

I lived in a village when I was a kid, so my mother and I had to take the bus to the nearest small town for my yearly doctor check-ups. They were always in winter (or I remember them always being in winter) - so we'd be really cold waiting for the bus after the appointment, but there was this tiny shop near the bus stop where the roaster took up most of the space, and it was warm and colourful, and smelled of coffee, spice, British ginger cookies, bonbons and all sorts of good stuff. :)

What a blissful memory!

After reading Patrick O'Brian for many years, I had to buy some green beans and roast them in an iron skillet (we did grind them in a processor, not a mortar and pestle!)

They came out great, a good Oxalca (sp!) coffee. The only trouble was we filled the entire apt with a smokey stimulant fog!!

There are worse things in life than a smoky stimulant fog--sounds like a rousing (heh) success!
