There is a space you call your haven.
This space says you can rest and you are safe. You can escape there when your mind is a blur and you can't think your way out. A cup of tea in hand, there is peace and clarity moving forward. There are still bumps and imperfections, but the cogs of life seem to turn better when you keep coming back to your space, your haven.
For those of you who have this space, you know what I am referring to. You know how important it is.
I have three in my home. One, the corner of our couch under the heater for those frosty mornings. Another, an outside hanging egg chair with a soft cushion. The final, my favourite, a tall wooden table with bar benches on our sunny back deck under an oversized blue umbrella.
If you don't know your space, if you don't have one yet, I encourage you, create one today. Look for spaces to retreat to, try them out one by one, a cup of tea in hand. Find the space you are drawn back to and call it your haven.
Indulge in Life.

It's the early hours of a Tuesday.
Visions of my son falling over the side of a sailing boat with no one in earshot have disturbed my sleep. I can see him falling, again and again, the dark sea capturing him. No amount of repeating the sequence in my mind can change the outcome. I have to get up.

There is great debate about the correct terminology when it comes to tea, herbs, botanicals, and proper preparation thereof. And as with most tea lovers, the great debate exists almost entirely within a few vexing thoughts. So, to put some of those vexing thoughts at ease, we thought we'd clarify a few things for you.
