PAUSE & INSPIRE #4 Chill Out by Fire
2021.08.20 PAUSE & INSPIRE
The seasons come and go, and the scenery around us changes.
As the days flow by and are gone, simply standing still every now and then can be enough to find new and stimulating encounters.
Take a break and see what insights you might discover.
Take a deep sip of tea.
“Pause & Inspire”
Sometimes you just want to escape the excitement and unease of the city and bask contentedly in the summer light and greenery.
The warmth and the breeze, the sounds and the smells.
Time to retune the sensation of being alive.
Cold-brewed green tea brings refreshment to every pore of the body.
Simple to make, all you need to do is place some tea leaves in a bottle, fill it with water, and leave it overnight.
So delicious, it makes you grateful for your efforts of the previous day.
While chopping some wood for later, I set up an ice brew.
All you have to do is place some tea leaves and ice in a jar.
The longer you wait, the more the ice melts and the more delicious tea you can savor.
It’s one way to turn the heat in your favor and allow nature’s processes to take their course to create a soothing brew that seeps into every fiber of your being.
Wow! That’s so rich!
It’s like a tea energy drink.
That barely touched the sides!
