Coffee Up …

By dave

For the aroma,

For the tantalizing taste,

For the addictive “rush”,

For the soothing sensations,

For all the good and wonderful things

that coffee means …


Hope your weekend is going well and whether it’s coffee, tea, or another favorite beverage, do savor the taste while you savor life – whether relaxing or going for it!

Savor the moments in your life!


Do You?

Savor the moments?

You should … you know! They help sustain us. Savoring things make the day brighter, richer, stronger, better and help give us the ability to sustain ourselves, just by savoring a special moment or occasion.

And for those of us who have someone to savor with – life is even sweeter. And if the hug you extend to someone (in that moment) is returned with hesitancy, that’s okay too. Trust me on this one, it is still much appreciated by the person receiving it, even if it does not appear this way. Some are better are expressing their emotions than others. But all are needful … all!

So do remember, as you embrace life – ‘savor’ and share as you can, but ingest into your own heart the full and true richness of life that exists everywhere!

Savor the moments,

Have an excellent weekend my wonderful friends,

Sensuality – Taste Me

Savoring the Flavor

Food is the first thing that comes to mind right? (or were you thinking of something else when you saw the title? Hmmm,) It’s amazing what our imagination can conjure depending on how words are presented.

The sense of taste — like all sensations — resides in the brain. The taste buds in your mouth have receptors that send messages to your brain. These messages help the brain interpret the characteristics of what you are tasting – the flavors.

What do you think about when you think about tasting something? Most probably what you enjoy eating, would be my guess. Tasting is not only recognizing that which you are eating but is also defining the pleasure received from the taste of a thing.

The word appetizing comes to mind. If I’m going to taste something I certainly would like it be appetizing – taste good. I want to know there are going to be pleasant feelings involved with the tasting.

The sensual aspect of tasting is the experience of appreciating the flavor in a manner that lends itself to more fully enjoying the process. Notice that “taste” is a word frequently used to describe the “experience” of anything in life. “Tasting life, savoring the richness”. The sensual meaning of the word comes across loud and clear. “the appetizing qualities of a woman”, “it’s all a matter of taste”, all the word associations connected with the sense of taste expand your feelings on a subject when they are applied.

When we eat we are chewing, ingesting, and swallowing. When we are tasting we are savoring the experience, that is the sensual difference to remember.

Once more, the best way to be sensual when tasting is to – Savor!

Savoring the Essence

The creamy mellow consistency

so deep the richness

sweetly succulent


lusciously delicious

so moist

so intoxicatingly sensual

this taste sensation

my mouth exploring


Exploding riches of taste

The Peach!
