Tea for Gia

tea2

A friend reminded me that to be human is to be ordinary.  Sometimes extraordinary things happen, but if they occurred all the time they too would be dull. Our “Walden” is within, after all.

For Gia

Traffic, dirty dishes, filthy bodies.

Spring blossoms, the ocean, mountains pushing sky.

Being human means only this – a single cup of tea.
