Coffee, Tea or Me?

Focus:  Still Life

Have you ever noticed that the handle of most coffee mugs is formed like half a heart?  I find it interesting that the human hand fits so comfortably into such a symbolic shape.  After all, don’t we use our hands to express love in so many ways – holding someone’s hand, touching them gently, or giving them a back rub.   I took advantage of the handle’s shape today to help me with my Valentine’s theme;  I shone a bright light adjacent to a coffee mug, so that the shadow created would complete the handle’s heart.  I think the result is quite endearing, and, if nothing else, reflects how many of us feel about our morning cup of joe!
