Headed out the door for a massage, which I desperately need. Playing the harp & moving all that equipment is rough on the body, & I have to treat my body like a professional athlete: yoga, weights, massage, tai chi, chiro…whatever it takes to keep things from freezing up. Right now I have a kink in my left shoulder. Years ago I had a bursitis attack in that shoulder, so I don’t mess around. It it’s got a kink, I’m getting a massage!!

This is nice bold breakfast tea! I got it from the TTB A, & its a sip down now.

My sis-in-law played stand-up bass in a bluegrass band. Nothing like a nice, un-bulky, lightweight instrument to tote and transport! Enjoy your break!

People always say, “don’t you wish you played the flute, or some other small instrument?” My response to that is, “hell no!”
LOL

Harp is definitively the most romantic instrument

Terri HarpLady

It is! And also, a flute player usually needs someone to play with, & I don’t. And harp players can charge more too! :)
The truth is, the real reason is I love playing the harp so much, & every day I’m grateful that I actually get to do this for a living!

You are blessed. Not many people can say that!

Profile

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
