For the last month or so, I have been enjoying afternoon tea
at 4:00 pm on the days that I am home.
It's a wonderful ritual and a time for quiet reflection, a slowing down of the day,
a refuge from hectic rush and busy-ness.
It is also a form of self-care and a nurturing of the wife/mother/artist/writer/worker that lives inside me; a way to refuel and recharge.
This is a ritual that is here to stay in my life.
