    Shui Di, you sure know how to offer tea.

    Just what was needed to cool things down on a hot day.

    Deep bows, J

    Hello Shuidi,

    I have looked closely at your tea, but all I can see is yet another "Attachment".

    :lol:

    Sorry for that, but it made me chuckle. In all honesty though, thank you, for the tea and the snicker.

    Gassho,
    Kelly

    "It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life.

    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."

    Re: Let's drink the tea

    Here's my contribution called The Tea of Peace ( from Stephen Levine.)

    Just a cup of tea. Just another opportunity for healing. Just the hand reaching out to receive the handle of the cup. Just noticing hot. Noticing texture and fragrance. Just a cup of tea. Just this moment in newness.
    Just the hand touching the cup. Just the arm retracting. The fragrance increasing as the cup nears the lips. So present. Noticing the bottom lip receiving heat from the cup, the top lip arched to receive the fluid within.
    Noticing the first taste of tea before the tea even touches the lips. The fragrance and the heat rising into the mouth. The first noticing of flavour. The touch of warm tea on willing tongue. The tongue moving the tea about in the mouth. The intention to swallow. The warmth that extends down into the stomach.
    What a wonderful cup of tea. The tea of peace, of satisfaction. Drinking a cup of tea, I stop the war.
