Tea, pots and listening to the world

For more than a year, I've spent a few minutes each day sipping tea from beautiful handmade yunomi (Japanese tea cups that have no handles) and listening to the world in my backyard.  I've begun to share the sounds of spring as it begins in wet earnest here in the northeast, and will post my daily tea meditations on the Spark blog.  Or if you like, subscribe on iTunes and you'll get a little taste of spring every morning!  You can subscribe here.

Here are the last few mostly rainy days, still filled with birdsong.
