Time is of the essence, embodying a constant flow of cosmic energy, as it was always written in the stars, and if you are attune to it, life just keeps blossoming. We've been digging deep in our passions as of late, and as we suspect you are too... It is a great time for change in our lives, to pair down and get real with our feelings. How is your Summer?
This past week my tea brothers and sisters who traveled from far away lands, spent time in Los Angeles, and we went on a tea journey like no other, giving ourselves a pat on the back for being the gracious tea host to our Global Tea Hut family. We drank tea as if we were all back on that glorious magical mountain of Wuyi… Our life in tea has been so abundant that from time to time I am deeply overwhelmed with gratitude for this time in our lives.
It’s been that kind of summer, so perhaps being away from the computer and in the tea spirit, stepping away to enjoy friends and family is what this summer has called in.
No doubt, we realize we have some catching up to do here... summer has created a little delayed in our time zone of postings.... it happens, as I don’t think we were meant to be day in day out bloggers rather than storytellers and poets when it flows effortlessly...
Still, we will always have our time to share here…. Until then, I am conjuring a little story on our meeting with prolific Taoist Writer and Artist Deng Ming Dao, who’s words inspire us endlessly, and who has seemingly without knowing, gave me the best gift a writer can have from another, Perspective. I have spent most of this summer observing the way of the Tao, ponder his words of advice.
We also dropped in to serve tea ceremony in Malibu with the soulful musician Julie Piatt, known as Srimati and co-author of Power Plant Way.
So stay tuned, there is so much more to share, unfolding naturally, as it should….
