I knew all along. I do think it began in my late teens or early twenties. As a young adult working in the office, (eh, that’s a few moons ago). You see, back then, especially on a Monday morning,my day couldn’t start effectively without a cup of good java. I had the best, Jamaica’s Blue Mountain coffee beans. A couple of cups eradicated the ‘fogs’ of the week-end.

It is funny how a bit of news can bring back memories. In the world of sports, tennis great, Serena Williams was not playing up to her best self. She was losing to Italy’s Flavia Pennetta in the first set. She got a brain storm and asked the empire if it was legal to order an espresso.

Ms. Williams got her wish. And, the rest is history in Perth, Australia. She crushed her Italian opponent, Pennetta – 6-3, 6-0. Now, do you think future players will be requesting coffee? I would!

We could all say it’s in Serena’s head, thinking a cup of java did the job. However, I say sometimes, one needs a little ‘jolt’ to get the brain in a particular mode, a winning mode. With skills and a cup of java, possibilities are endless. I’m no scientist, but, those learned subjects will state that there are properties in the coffee beans that are excellent for brain health.

Guys, for those of us who drink this beverage, I do think it’s time that we take a ‘chug’. Well, at least, sip on. Have a caffeinated moment! Oh, try not to consume a few hours before bedtime. Cheers!

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
