Fear

Isnt it a very familiar feeling?  Fear. Fear predominated most of my actions, whether it be choosing a career or whether it be eating something.

Indian Coffee House…Coffee Mania..

~ Coffee ~ “I’d  rather  take  coffee  than  compliments  just  now.” ― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women Let’s cut the crap and start by me professing my new-found love.
