I'M WAITING FOR THE HU - MAN - ITY : BANANA + COFFEE
Banana and coffee is my usual breakfast whenever I am in London, and the people who serve me have been doing so for almost 30 years. They are my own Breakfast Club to be frank.
No matter what overwhelming events are taking shape worldwide, the headlines, the ups and downs of my own life, the pleasure I take in the few minutes chat we share each morning is real. What do we talk about? The usual stuff, I suppose. Call it the "small stuff". But as time passed, I learnt that the smaller everyday stuff, daily common denominators in other words - is actually the "big stuff". The only stuff really worth bothering about perhaps? Because no matter where you come from, and these people who I chat to come from all over the world, it is surely known that our real cares, our hopes and dreams etc - are all the same. And I cannot tell you how much I like these familiar faces for being so full of life, for being the way they are, and for the good feeling that come through those few minutes of human transaction. Hopefully you know what I mean? JK
