This tumbler mug is a distinct representation of who I am. Besides having “worn-in” looks, this cheap old tumbler is a memory of a summer I had working in these very woods, away from most of civilization. Having a piece of this summer by me all the time is a distinct pleasure and reminds me to look to the woods to get away. It may be stained from the coffee it holds every day and the top might leak (a lot), but its design has taken on a whole new meaning to me personally. And besides, if it’s held up to my use and abuse all these years, it has to be worth something; it’s proven itself quite worthy!
