Brewing happiness one cup at a time.

Earth Hour

Happy to introduce here Miss Tara, taking charge of the Earth Hour last evening (happens to be around the kitchen table again).

Future was abstract, until the kids arrived. 2050 is suddenly not about me a grumpy old man ready to go, but about Tara who might be having little kids of her own and dreaming of a future for them. When I see her grow, and enjoy in her a happiness that words cannot express, I ask myself what right do I have to deny her the same privilege.

What kind of world shall we bequeath her? An earth we plundered because we were so unable to restrain our consumption, without a thought for the coming generations?

We owe a lot to all the children of the world.  This hour of darkness bears a light for our collective future.

We have named our upcoming presentation on Japanese tea ceremony, Chigusa. The event takes place this Sunday 01/22 at Leaf Tea Bar. If you are curious what Chigusa means, it is but a name of a clay jar that was used to store tea in Japan. No, not a type of a jar, but a jar that dates back to the 14th Century and was named Chigusa by tea men who had fallen in love with it. Today, the jar sits in the Smithsonian Institution.
