According to its subtitle, Coffee Shop Musings by Simon I. Perlsweig is 'A Collection of Little Rhythmic Thoughts Unbound by Convenience' and reflects the author's word-smithing skills. On Prayer: "A spiritual bond, communal or alone, Wants and needs are expressed, no need of a phone, With faith and belief, may they all become known." Simon says he discovered that switching genres to these 3-line musings when he got stuck on more intense work effectively released his creativity. His thoughts cover a wide range, including several rhymes on Jewish customs and holidays, friendship, philosophy, nature, food, and American traditions. This little book could be useful for overcoming your writers' block or a prompt to creativity when you are working on business strategies or projects. When under pressure, as he so aptly describes, "Multitasking is hard when time is like a bee swarm," so pondering these thoughts may help you rein in and focus your thinking.
"Barista: Walk thru the door, get greeted by name, Order's all in, some mind-reading game, The warmth is two-fold, so glad I came." Simon captures that authentic coffee shop hospitality we all welcome. I can see myself sipping a Flat White, musing with this collection, freeing myself of the frenetic, and allowing space for the creative. Thanks to Simon sharing his trick, I now have a practical tool to help me develop my creative writing. Perhaps some of Simon Perlsweig's 300 poetic thoughts in Coffee Shop Musings could inspire your musing, pondering, designing, and planning. Why not take his Coffee Shop Musings with you to your local coffee shop. Wander through some of his rhythmic thoughts to relax your thinking. In the same way that our most creative thoughts come to us in the shower, this practice may help you overcome your blank page and find your inspiration!
