it was also the first of my Blue Bottle Coffee experience, too.
i like this side of a city-- in the morning, at a natural state before it puts the game face on for the rest of the day. the true lady revealed, the secrets exposed, the troubles of the night resolved in the peak of the light coming through the thick rain clouds.
a write spot, a cold chill, and yes, agreeably one of the best cups of coffee all before sunrise. ♥ December!
