I have numerous appliances to make my daily cup of coffee, and even more mugs to drink it in. But I often come back to this simple percolator, this old and hand-painted mug and ground coffee from ‘Devan’s South Indian coffee’ in Delhi. Morning routine. Before bed routine (yes, I drink coffee before sleep!). I find this routine very soothing. Something I look forward to every day. This is a contemporary still life portrait of everyday objects I treasure.
Writing in a circle of yellow light, alone at my desk, at four in the morning.An after dinner conversation about ecosystems, the last book I read (Autumn Light), the odd hour coffee (the culprit!), a walk under trees with bare branches, a familiar warm smile; the previous evening swirls in my mind.
