sunday sip: Metamorphosis

I wanted to share a quote with you this Sunday, Coffee Lovers. It is from a novel by my favorite author, Salman Rushdie. In his novel, Shalimar the Clown, he writes:

A rope could become air. A boy could become a bird. Metamorphosis was the secret heart of life.

I think this brilliant and beautiful idea speaks volumes about the kind of world that Salman Rushdie, a man who has seen much of his adult life go up in smoke and has dared to live, breathe and write another day, believes in. It is a world that will change, but not end. A man that will be shaken, but will not stop. A state of existence where all things do what they were designed to do: adapt.

Join me for a cup.
