  2. Gorgeous imagery, gorgeous haiku.

    Try Cost Plus / World Market. They sell these beauties for about $20 whereas Tevana shops sell them for $100.

    1. All of us have rituals, some conscious, some unconscious, that help us get through a day.

  7. We drink mate (pronounced mah-tay) here in Bend ... very soothing.

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog ... I didn't know the elderly woman who was so horrifically abused, but it did happen in Oregon ~

  11. Thank you all for visiting and comments. I've never used the tetsubin although it is usable. It's for serving tea rather than making it. But I love the ritual of sipping tea for comfort or relaxing while watching beauty. Love that new "white tea" which is the new/early tea buds.
