To Tea

To drink your feelings: feels relevant right now, the upgraded version of sheet-caking. With all the political turmoil (yes that’s the polite word I’m going with) it’s surprising we haven’t drunk ourselves to death. For me tea is the drink- for tears, tragedy, disappointment. With a history of depression in my family, even in college was I conscious of the fact that if I was feeling sad in anyway, I shouldn’t allow myself to drink: it wasn’t safe. Unfortunately, I have proved myself right on a couple occasions.

Tea is always a better solution.

When a writer/ director friend send me recipes for a feeling and a mood, they became cups of tea- tonics & exorcisms.

These are the first of 2.
