A Spot of Tea

"If you have one teapot
And can brew your tea in it
That will do quite well.
How much does he lack himself
Who must have a lot of things?"
~ Sen no Rikyu

"Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves  slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future." ~ Thich Nat Hahn

I had a lovely cup of Earl Grey tea this morning in a hospital cafe. My mother was in an ICU room and this 'spot of tea' was a welcome comfort in my morning! NEVER underestimate the power of of a cup of tea!!!

Linda, thank you so much for your comment. I am adding your mother -- and her daughter -- to my prayer list today. Blessings to you and yours!

Beautiful photography work! Aren't teapots a lovely thing to photograph? I think tea tastes so much better from a pot over a mug! Have a great day!
