anyone for tea



i recently obtained a set of japanese tea cups. very cute. very ornate. very symptomatic.

my old life that ive known for all its ups & downs, the recklessness & the love seems to be passing, or atleast changing. altering in quality & quantity. not that it was bad. It taught me lots & still has much to give, but alas, things change.

Transition. Between jobs, places, friends, homes, boys.

I'm beginning to be a bit more, say, tender? brave? stable? - more like relaxed. I still want the clubing, & the occassional recklessness but i need some other things too, things that have thus far has only appeared in apparitions. I am unsure of what i see, there is no manifestation for me to reach out. to grab. all is mystery.

This sighting has left its mark on me. It influences from underneath. Alters my action, differs who i am. ever so slightly. small changes. little desires. glimpses &
the occasional materialisation of objects that remind me of what is to be. They fill me with the kind of warmth you get from drinking a glass of green tea.

will you invite me over for tea one afternoon? i can bring a small tea chest of treasures. you are the friend i least expected to express a hankering for tea and ceremonies. nonetheless, i'm glad to find another tea friend.

I also appreciate tea being invited over for tea with friends. especially if the tea is not black tea or peppermint tea. Camomile tea reminds me of yum cha with friends in Chinatown.

Tea is an essential part of our sanity exercises. We would be pleased to sip tea with such company as thee.

they are so lying - really they want to have beer with you, and are indifferent about cermonies... so I think they may argue so this shall be anonymous...

I know the feeling well. This sudden understanding of quietness and focus. Don't let it fool you, though, that it is a change from one season of life into the next. You are still in summer and this is a just a taste of Autumn...

One day soon the summer storms will whisk you away again into a new adventure, and life will be edgy and dangerous again.

Enjoy the stillness while you can. But also embrace the chaos when it comes to call!
