On a day like today, when melancholy, peace, nostalgia and wonderment are fighting for space in your crowded head, you need filter coffee. On a day like today, when your playlist criss-crosses time periods, genres, eras and moods, and to seem to do anything else but daydream is travesty, filter coffee is the balm for a weary mind and soul. It will wake you up to everything you have forsaken for a view you hope to have from the top one day. On a day like today, conversation and silence will tap dance, you will rediscover the unadulterated charm of reading, the ruffling pages of the book creating a symphony of their own making.
When the filter coffee hits you and you are truly awake to the fact that days like this are few and far between, that soon you will be forced to make peace with reality, the day will take a leaf out of Bono’s words - ‘a beautiful day, don’t let it get away'.
On a day like today, you need to wake up, steal some its beauty and hide it in your closet if you so desire. For that you need filter coffee.
And when sleep finds you again, hopefully, Mila Kunis will be right where you left her.
P.S – this piece is an ode to a beautiful June day in Bangalore.
