I am awake, but I feel as if I am still dreaming. I had a really bizarre dream & woke up groggy. Next thing you know I was journaling, & next thing you know I have an outline for my next writing project, including insights into some of the characters. NaNoWriMo starts one month from today, & I had planned to write the sequel to the novel I wrote 2 years ago (never mind the fact that that novel (also based on a bizarre dream) & the one I wrote last year (also based on an equally bizarre dream from back in my 20’s) are far from finished!).
So now it looks like I have a whole new story to tell, which has nothing to do whatsoever with any previous idea I’ve ever had. It’s crazy, it’s out there, & it emerged from the Void while I slept, to taunt me.

My first cup of the day. I read Dinosara’s review up in my room & said to myself, “I wanna cup of that.” I can’t believe it’s almost noon. I brewed & drank this tea as if dreaming, & I’m still dreaming that story in the back of my mind. I need tea & food, & probably will have to carry my journal around with me all day, jotting down more crazy outline ideas, more character notes, more scenery, etc. The creative process sometimes consumes me, & this morning I feel consumed!

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!
