Monday's Tea Quote

If you ask Zen people they will say tea is not
 something that you pour
with unawareness and drink like any other drink.
It is not a drink, it is meditation; it is a prayer.
So they listen to the kettle creating a melody,
and in that listening they become more silent;
more alert.

It is the season of feeling blessed with the bounty
from the garden and the fruit stand.
Enjoy and savor each and everyday.

This is a lovely quote and picture, Marilyn. I love apples this time of year, and this picture just spoke to me today.

Happy first day of October!

GORGEOUS image, Marilyn... so lovely! Tea is definitely a pray! The whole ritual of preparing and drinking tea is like a prayer for me. :) Wishing you an abundant autumn!! ((HUGS))
