Monday's Tea Quote

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis on which the world Earth revolves-
without rushing toward the future.
~Thich Nat Hahn

Sipping tea with a friend,
listening to the music of the day,
tea brings us together in shared spirit.

It was March at the Lan Su Chinese Gardens.
Jeanie, do you recognize the hand?
Hope those guys don't mind being in my picture.

Ohhhhh, they don't know, they were photographed.....

Oh those camera phones! None of us ever know, do we?

Jeanie said...

Might that hand be someone I know? We both loved the photo you took that day!

This is a cool picture of tea and friendship, Marilyn.

I am sipping on orange spice tea right now, and I will drink it slowly and reverently, just like your quote suggests. : )

WONDERFUL thoughts on tea... you and Thich Nhat Hanh always inspire! I'm thinking those guys were enjoying themselves and tea too much to notice they were in the "background". ;) This looks like a nice place to sip and eat! Happy Week, my friend ((HUGS))
