Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves-
slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future.
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.
~Thich Nhat Hahn~
I searched a million (or so it seemed) poems on the internet to come up with something that sparked a painting. Here it is, a painting I did today just for Illustration Friday. I've titled it "Tea and Ginkos." The cup and saucer are very Wabi-Sabi. Who needs a perfect elipse?
