musing this morning...

... on the natures of water -- flowing water, frozen water, stagnant water, living water -- as it occurs in the world and in the soul

water and dreams, revisited...

thoughts from gaston bachelard for this winter morning: "one cannot bathe twice in the same river because already, in his inmost recesses, the human being shares the destiny of flowing water. ... a being dedicated to water is a being in flux. he dies every minute; something of his substance is constantly falling away."

gaston bachelard, water and dreams: an essay on the imagination of matter, p. 6... the bachelard translations, the pegasus foundation, the dallas institute of humanities and culture, 1983

... and reflections on tea...

steeped in water, tea sustains body and soul... remembering everest first flush from nepal -- subtle, inspirational, and now unavailable

be well,

(since this post, everest first flush has again become available through stash tea...
follow your bliss!
