So I’ve noticed something else. As per my post of yesterday vis a vi Addictive Writing, I’ve noticed that this trend towards being unable to write without having an addictive substance in me, extends also towards regular work.
It’s most distressing to know that Coffee is my power source and if it’s ever taken away from me, everything I do will collapse underneath me. Even the simple pleasures of computer gaming, (I enjoy strategy games, and without coffee I can’t think strategy) will fall apart.
Perhaps this is something about out modern society. We are so used to having these amenities that boost various aspects of us that we actually need them now to create. We all have our poisons. I shudder to think what would happen to half the design world if we were unable to get our daily coffee fix.
It doesn’t bear thinking about.
Even now just thinking about Coffee, despite the fact I have a cup next to me, makes me want more of the damn stuff. Perhaps I should write an Ode to Coffee. Yeah that sounds like a brilliant idea.
An Ode to Coffee
Oh great dark bean
You work my brain
and make me think
I NEED ONE MORE DRINK
