Hey y’all…heh…y’all; it’s getting to be almost time to start waxing poetic about Jazz Fest again, but I’ll save that for another blog!! Today, I had Dr. D’Adamo’s blood type specific tea on the brain. The little natural foods market here in Manchester (right on South Willow if you’re in the area…in the Shaw’s plaza) sells ER4YT tea. I had gotten the AB blend a while back, and realized that I’ve never shared how wonderful it really is!! There’s a blend of all bennies in there and it’s got a really unique flavor that is soothing and rejuvenating all at the same time. It can be consumed alone, but my favorite way to prepare it is with soymilk and honey. If you can’t find it around you, it may be worth it to buy it online through the website. I really do like having it in my cabinet, and find myself craving the AB tea at times. Perhaps it’s something for you to think about introducing as springtime approaches.
Speaking of spring, I have paperwhite, amaryllis, and iris bulbs in water in a sunny window of my condo. One of the paperwhite bulbs has bloomed and the amaryllis has two huge, beautiful red flowers. The iris bulbs are sending up their shoots and I’m so looking forward to their shock of purple to come. With winter clinging so firmly to March, and no dirt of my own to speak of, these bursts of color in my home are quite beneficial to my psyche. I’ve been tempted to bring them into the classroom to share the process with my students, but I just love seeing them here, in my own space too much!! An ever choking cabin fever has been infecting my system the last couple of weeks, and I realize how much I took warm life in Southern California for granted. I know that I’ll even appreciate the mud season here in New Hampshire for the sunshine, warmth and living smells that it will bring…but for the time being, my heart longs to be back in Cali urging my wildflowers into a riotous bloom, babying my sunflowers into fortitude and cultivating my herbs for savory cooking (although I do have parsley on the windowsill with the other blooms too…thanks to a special dear).
Ahhh well, I’ve had far more benefits from moving back to the East Side than negatives, and while I miss some parts of the Left Coast, there are others that I don’t miss at all (traffic, smog, throngs of people…to name a few!). All I can hope is that this finds you well, happy and healthy…living a highly beneficial life…take care of you, be well, and enjoy your special blend of tea, coffee or other beverage as you engage in deeper breathing to awaken a greater appreciation of the life all around you...
