I love the opening message of this post.  I had to re-share.  I emphasized the portion that spoke loudest to me, and hope it does so for you as well.
My friends, let us always have time to sit and enjoy a “real” cup of coffee or tea away from the rushed mentality of the paper cup.

Take Time To Savor The Borek, A Flaky Turkish Snack
It seems that almost every country knows how to snack better than we do. We grab coffee and a muffin from a drive-through, or mindlessly reach into the chip bag while staring at the screen on our desk. I recently visited a friend in Spain’s Basque country who pointed out, with disdain, the lone cafe in his town that would give you coffee in a to-go cup rather than the standard little demitasse. The idea that you wouldn’t have a few minutes to sit and fully appreciate a cup of coffee and a little snack, either with a friend or the daily paper, was nearly unfathomable.
I hear where he’s coming from. Every now and then, when I catch myself wolfing something down without even registering (let alone appreciating) it, or forgoing breaks altogether, I make a mental note to make up for it. With a proper cup of tea, a proper moment of respite. A proper borek.  -Deena Prichep
