It starts before it starts

Kahvaltı is the Turkish word for breakfast. And a Turkish breakfast is a feast. It is many small plates, tastes, and a highly social experience.

Kahvaltı translates to before-coffee. It is the meal you get out of the way to get to the real reason to wake up: The coffee.

As a coffee person, I liked that a lot until I did not. How sad is it that I enjoy the idea of rushing through a feast to get to a singular point that officially Starts My Day?

The enjoyment of the day, of a moment, of a life: It starts, before it starts. It only requires us to notice that it already has.
