The Delphic Sibyl (detail) by Michelangelo Buonarroti 

"I start my mornings convincing myself to open the windows, and let the new air replace the old. To let myself fold the sheets and leave behind all the doubts from yesterday under a well made bed. A freshly brewed cup of coffee filling the spaces in between scents of who I am behind closed doors. This is what I leave behind. This is what I go home to."

Frozen Frangelico Coffee

4 cups strong cold coffee
1 cup Frangelico
2/3 cup heavy cream
6 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Stir cold coffee and Frangelico together in a bowl. Transfer to the freezer, and chill until slushy but slightly frozen, anywhere from 4-6 hours. Stir the mixture several times during this time.
Whisk heavy cream in a standing mixer until soft peaks are just forming. Add maple syrup and whisk until soft peaks return.
To serve: divide coffee mixture among 4-6 glasses and  top with equal amounts of whipped cream.
