Sumitra, thank you for the beautiful ceramic tea pot and cups for gongfu cha. I've enjoyed the samples you provide when I order from you at Panther Moon Tea. I so look forward to seeing you and enjoying the wonderful material for gongfu cha. Blessings on your day! :-)
The Way of Tea
A friend presented me
With tender leaves of Oolong tea,
For which I chose a kettle
Of ivory-mounted gold,
A mixing-bowl of snow-white earth.
With its clear bright froth and fragrance,
It was like the nectar of Immortals.
The first bowl washed the cobwebs from my mind -
The whole world seemed to sparkle.
A second cleansed my spirit
Like purifying showers of rain,
A third and I was one of the Immortals -
What need now for austerities
To purge our human sorrows?
Worldly people, by going in for wine,
Sadly deceive themselves.
For now I know the Way of Tea is real.

Katherine, thank you for your messages responding to my request for mediation and advocacy. I appreciated having you read what I had to say about what's been happening for me in the various government and medical systems. I appreciated your suggestions and offers of help. Thank you for asking clarifying questions so I could be more clear about my ask. Enjoy your day!
Thank you, Ben, for driving me to Little Wings Farm to pick up my CSA box two weeks ago. I enjoyed sharing tea with you and experiencing meaningful communication through our continued friendship over the years. I'm particularly grateful for your kindness, generosity, and authenticity.
Charlie, thank you for showing up for me. I appreciated when you brought groceries and other delicious foods for me when I was in my early recovery last December. Thanks for the seafood chowder, fish and chips, and sandwich. Thanks for sharing tea with me last time you came over. I look forward to sharing tea and space again (we can do it socially distanced, too!). Thank you for blessing me with your sound healing work in all the ways you do that in person and remotely. I appreciate you! Blessings on your day! :-)
Willow branches graze the grass,
As I sit in the shade drinking tea.
A note from a flute blows clearly,
Mingling with the sound of rain.
I could sit here alone forever,
And still I'd never feel lonely.

James, thank you for driving me to Urgent Care last December and helping me get home when I couldn't do that for myself. Thank you for coming over to visit me during my early recovery. Thank you for offering your kindness, care and concern for me. I appreciate you. Enjoy your day!
Thank you so much, Tree, for creating and offering a covered, socially-distanced outdoor space for Ben and I to visit back in January. I enjoyed getting to see you briefly. Thank you also for the two electric blankets you provided for us that were already warm. I really appreciated your hospitality once again. Blessings to you!
Lilly, thank you so much for making phone calls on my behalf and setting up appointments for me when I couldn't do it myself. Thank you for going to medical and health-related appointments with me and being a sacred witness to my healing journey. Thank you for your sweet, lovely presence. I appreciate you. Blessings on your day!
I got to spend 30 minutes with her during an entry, exploratory reiki session this week. I've received reiki before and to compare, Margot was incredibly intuitive- also fun and light. Her studio is a peaceful, no-frills space. After the healing we spoke for a bit and Margot offered a few free samples as well. Over all, the experience felt professional. It was a self reset.
