It's the winter solstice, and I'm mindful of the weight of the planet, and the emergence from darkness, and, too, the tug of the new year. And so, in the spirit of that, I wanted to share a poem.

Drink Your Tea.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves -
slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future;
live the actual moment.
Only this is life.

- Thich Naht Hanh.
