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

crisp.

Standard

as our temps take a dip into the zero-ish range,

it is good to remember the importance of connection,

the joy of giving to others, and the comfort of the sun.

“it is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake,

the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.

this crisp winter air is full of it.”

~john burroughs, “Winter Sunshine”

sharing.

Standard

they told santa that they would

make sure to send some cookies along for mrs. claus,

because he usually gets to all of them

and she doesn’t get any treats.

the note is to make sure that he doesn’t forget to share.

 – happy christmas to all –

“sharing the same meal reaffirms kinship.”
