U - Unexpected

Confinement can feel pretty bad - scary, boring, unfair. It can also be a time of almost imperceptible opening. All of a sudden the creative muse has time to work her mojo - and you have time to let her. Chronic illness can, surprisingly, reveal hidden longings and move you closer to becoming fulfilled. It can bring many gifts. 

Have you seen anything good come from the life altering experience of chronic illness, your own or someone else's? Please share.

T is for Tea!

Tea. If I have fewer than five varieties in my cabinet then I am obviously out of tea! I have tea that helps me sleep, tea that cleanses, tea that keeps candida at bay, tea that's spicy, tea that's sweet, tea that tastes of mango, and tea that takes the edge off. I even have a tea that blossoms into a rose! Loose tea is fun and takes a little extra effort. Maybe that's why I love it so much. My teapot has a tea basket and the pot is made of glass so I can watch the water deepen in color as the basket swells with wet leaves. I don't know why, but there's something comforting about tea.

Do you have a favorite tea?
