|This is my beautiful old teapot, which I have recently resurrected, and the wisdom on my teabag.|
I learned a new word today: tsiology. Tsiology - n. a treastise on tea. This word comes from an early 19th century pamphlet on the state of the British tea trade. It was published by a British tea dealer, and remained in four printings, but eventually, the subject - and the word - lost its place in the lexicon of the day.
It's a beautiful reminder on writing about what's important.
How many treatises have you written? What subject in your life deserves its own pamphlet? These are questions I have asked myself recently. Sadly, I haven't written nearly enough, and I certainly haven't written anything that I feel deserves to be circulated. This must change.
Today, I am wishing you the inspiration to write your own courageous pamphlet. Pour yourself a cup of tea, find a place to rest, and write your treatise. Let the wisdom of tea - and your own heart - be your guide.
