Unfurl


This tightly wound tea, when given the right conditions, unfurls.  It stretches and dances.  It becomes its best. Its essence is extraordinary.
That's how I want to be during my sabbatical. 

I have many fun things planned for the next 10 weeks, including:  family visit, bike camping with the DH, and a tea tour to Asia.  Plus plenty of time for me to sip, savor, stretch and dance, and contemplate how I can tend to my own essence.

These last three posts, 'unfurl', 'capture the moment', and 'lavender' were so beautifully written and so inspirational ~ thank you for sharing your thoughts and your feelings in such an expressive way. Simply beautiful.

Oh, Steph, I am really happy for you. A tea trip to Asia, how wonderful. But time, precious time for yourself - I hope it is all wonderful
