Sunday was time for tea in the park.
It was our first outdoor ceremony this year.
What a delight to join 11 others at the Viet Nam Memorial
and sip tea together.
Each tea set is always fun to see.
Savoring the afternoon sun delighted our souls.
Serving our friends brings JOY around the circle.
Gathering together with hugs and meditation
it is tea time at the park.
At the end of sipping tea there is often a poem or quote shared.
This was the quote shared on this occasion of tea at the park.
"I take pleasure in tea,
appreciating it with my spirit and
therefore cannot explain why.
The spirit of the Way of Tea,
when put into words,
seems to banal."
