If you are lucky like me, you have a magic hour or so every day when you are relaxed in a familiar, comfortable environment by yourself, and when you are free to daydream. It might be in the morning with a cup of coffee when you are slowly getting ready for a new day, or in the evening after work in a warm bath when you are winding down from a busy day.




A place for duuudes of all sexes, ages, religions, and coffee-preferences to hang out and shoot the sh!t about their latest creations, to brag, lament, query, or quote, it’s all good…
