Ritual






“When tea becomes ritual, 
it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see 
greatness in small things. 
Where is beauty to be found? 
In great things that, like everything else, 
are doomed to die, 
or in small things that aspire to nothing, 
yet know how to set a jewel of infinity 
in a single moment?” 
Muriel Barbery

There were many people there 
But not one of them heard it."

Too old for Tuesday




"There's ageism in everything. I don't give a hoot. 
It isn't what other people think; 
it's what you think. 
But it's hard to come to terms with getting older. 
I admire people like Vivienne Westwood." 
Cyndi Lauper






"I've been running a full marathon every year 
for more than 20 years, 
and my record is getting worse. 
Getting older, 
getting worse. 
It's natural. "
Haruki Murakami
