Upon waking yesterday, I found myself stunned. Faced with the realities that exist in the world I could not bring myself to write. For the most part, even focusing on daily chores became inconsequential.
I drank many cups of Sencha in an attempt to make sense out of senselessness, as I watched the news reports.
Of course the verdict remained the same, it made no sense.
I felt there would be one reprieve to the sorrow and somberness of spirit, I would be meeting a few friends later that evening, on G+, for the first Tandem Tea Tasting of the New Year.
Since my mood was glum for most of the day, I decided to bring a cup of Matcha to the party. No, it was not a bowl, it was a 16oz cup. Yes, I felt the need to immerse myself in the brew to keep from falling into melancholy.
When it was almost time, I got a note the meeting would be delayed for a half hour and I prayed silently, that this event would not be canceled.
I replenished my 16 oz cup replacing the many sips I had taken during the wait.
Ethan Asam, Rachel’s youngest graced the screen and we all remarked how he had grown over the last few months. We bid him goodnight and the conversation began in earnest, we had so much catching up to do.

When the clock struck midnight (my time) and my cup was empty It was time for me to bid adieu. I have coined a new nickname for our group “Tea Talk Til Midnight” and my dear Geoff appropriately called it “Midnight Tea Talks”
So, if just for a few moments, I was able to escape the din of the world. Thanks all.
