Happy international tea day! 🍵
I've been curious about @alfredtea since @cellacella gave me a pink Alfred Tea tote bag for my birthday. I mean it's a tea room with a lot of pink! Of course I'm curious! 💗 I love you so matcha Vinci! You're my cup of tea 💗
I'm hoping to try this place again before I leave LA tomorrow!
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.' It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

My happy place: on the canals of Amsterdam pretending I'm on House Hunters looking for my next canal house (or houseboat!) while also thinking about what kind of pancake I'm going to be ordering for lunch.
Below, Bestway #traveller Maureen K. gives her thoughts on her recent #India - A Fusion of Colour, Music & Soul tour hosted by Paul Saltzman. For those intimidated by travelling to India, this is a must-read.⠀
"The India With Paul Saltzman 2018 tour was truly the trip of a lifetime and I would highly recommend it. Although it is a little on the pricier end, it is well worth it. DO NOT go to India on a shoestring. This trip is on the opposite end of that continuum. The hotels are amazing, luxurious and have wonderfully attentive service. Every detail on the tour is preplanned and you just have to relax and enjoy it. Our tour guide, Ajay, was personable, funny, knowledgeable, efficient and reliable. Paul's deep knowledge and fondness for India allowed him to develop an amazing itinerary that touched on so many experiences, flavours and delightful surprises. If you remember and love the Beatles, you will love this tour. If you don't remember the Beatles you will develop an awareness of a rich and enduring musical past and you will love this tour. I know what you are thinking. I can't go because: "I'll get sick.! It's so dirty! I won't like the food! It's too hot! There's too many flies!" etc. etc. Trust me, that's what everyone thinks - even some of my younger teaching colleagues with Indian heritage lol ! All I can say is thorough preparation will give you peace of mind. Short of a liferaft and flares, I went to India prepared for famine, fire, flood, pestilence and the second coming of you know who. All I got was a head cold. Don't overthink, don't fret, don't second guess. Just go! You won't regret it."⠀
