"This is why I firmly, firmly believe that if you want to get together with someone, you have to do so. If you love someone you have to tell them so. When the flowers bloom, celebrate. When you fall in love, dive right in. When you find happiness, embrace and savour it wholeheartedly. Perhaps that is all we can do.
If someone is special to you, you should seize every opportunity to eat with them, live life with them, and enjoy their company.
That, it turns out, is the meaning of ichi go ichie..."
~ The Wisdom of Tea, Noriko Morishita
Major #throwback to a time when I used to fly to Japan every month. One of those many times I had the unforgettable experience of wearing a yukata, summer kimono, and wandering through a small town on the outskirts of Tokyo － and attempting to converse with a Cat, like a plot out of a Murakami novel. 🐱
I am so grateful for opportunities in the past that have already engaged me on the Roji, the Dewy Path of Tea even though my consciousness was not yet ready to receive Tea Spirit. I am honoured to bring this poetic side of Tea to my upcoming Seven-week Cha Dao Circle of Poetry, Presence and Connection with the great chajins like Rikyu and Baisao.
