A whole new direction entirely?

What of Dublin? Do I stay or do I go? Is there any point being there? Certainly more of a point than being in Limerick. I never felt home in Limerick... and can't imagine uprooting all over again...

I'm tempted to stay put - it's easier to imagine. But I'm restless, too. And people keep asking asking asking - What are your plans for next year? My response of "I haven't any" gets pricklier every time..

I've gotten along fine 'till now favourong impulses over plans. So, fuck it, that's what I'll do this time too. Play it by ear. I feel that prickle of annoyance subsiding already.

Everyone has an opinion, 'though... You should travel. You should work for a while and think about it. You should do a masters.

I'll do what feels right when the time comes. And, for now, enjoy being where I am.

Great Coffee...

... can turn a bad day into a great one... a highly unproductive mood into a hopeful one... an anxious tummy into a happy one... and a grey city scene into something of gobsmacking beauty.

Try an americano in The Bald Barista at the Avalon house. Has to be black. Thick as tar, and tastes of burnt chocolate ashes, or something.
