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 moment is life.

- Thich Nhat Hahn

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

Hometown with a heart.....

I am one of the luckiest people to have grown up in Christchurch, New Zealand. Sometimes I don't realise how much I have been shaped by my culture.....this is also quite true when it comes to the fact of spending most of my twenties so far living in the States....
