Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Jason's Self Deception

Jason goes to the coffee shop to study; but he's really there to eavesdrop.

"It seems to me that, to the extent to which I am self-deceived, my weakness of will is mitigated. For my intention to “get a lot of work done” is tainted by my concomitant, but not consciously acknowledged, intentions to “listen to inane, yet strangely transfixing, coffee shop conversations and prevent feelings of guilt from stopping me”. To extent that the first intention is tainted, it does not seem so bad that I don’t follow through on it."

He blogs at Fake Barn Country.
