We’re one month in! Just a reminder to follow my movie-a-day blog if you’d like a barrage of movie titles to check out.
Boston: my love. My first and always home.
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

I love this idea.

Starting on April 1st, I will attempt to see at least one film a day for a year (with a smattering of TV episodes, mini-series, etc) and share them with people, along with how to find them and perhaps tidbits, recommendations, etc. I got the idea from Mark Duplass’s Twitter #Netflix365 thread, but I want the option of posting pictures and/or more than 160 characters, hence the blog. We’ll see how it goes.
My new blog: The goal is to expose people (and myself) to a wide variety of film genres, but there will definitely be an emphasis on classics, art films, foreign films, etc. Follow if you’d like to learn about a different film each day! http://mermanmovies365.tumblr.com/
