Sur la Tabla Rasa

MUG: A new eleven ounce 'barrel mug' made in China, designed and sold by Gibson Home accessories. Coarse black finish, with a smooth white interior and blue lip. Nice drinker, with great tactile qualities. It came with a piece of chalk.

COFFEE: A 'Fair-Trade' washed Sidamo Nura Korate from Ethiopia, roasted at the Central Market Westgate store.

NOTES: This mug was a Christmas gift from my daughter Catherine LaGrone... who, like her elder sister Anna, never ever needs to give me anything, having gifted me with so much in my life I would never else have known. They have written their names on the previously too-often-erased blank slate of my heart.
