Wherever you are drinking your tea,
whether at work, in a cafe, or at home,
it is wonderful to allow enough time to appreciate it.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Today I'm sharing a Royal Albert teacup and saucer with you. It's covered with peaches, plums, pears, and berries. Inside the teacup, a cluster of red cherries dangle from their stems. Gold guilds the edge of the teacup and saucer's edges.
There is something nearly as relaxing as sitting in contemplation with a cup of tea. Beads, strung onto string or wire repetitively, allow for creative and purposeful détente. Stringing beads AND sipping tea? The ultimate in the easing of tensions. Tranquility.
