content.

Standard

while spending the better part of a morning

at the salon

and at the having my hair washed stage

a woman I’ve never met

hair in foil for highlights

wrapped in a black robe

walked up

and stood before me pointing

 then proclaiming,

to the entire salon:

“now here is a woman who is contented and relaxed,

taking 10 minutes, all for herself!”

something about my demeanor

must have given me away

for she was spot on.

“contentment is the only real wealth”

tea.

Standard

met my friend and shared some time and a pot of tea.
“meanwhile, let us have a sip of tea. the afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. let us dream of evanescence and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.”
Kakuzō Okakura, The Book of Tea
