Ciao, from Tuscany
As I sat down to write you today, a beautiful yellow butterfly began to fly in front of my window. I noticed it immediately, but then it kept circling and so, I paused the typing and allowed it to take me with it for a few flights of fancy. There is a lot of symbolism behind the butterfly, the most common are, spiritual rebirth, transformation, creativity, endless potential, vibrant joy, change, ascension, and an ability to experience the wonder of life. I believe that is where we are right now in our world, as crazy as it feels.
I am writing to you from my home in Tuscany, where much of everyday life seems "normal" but I know the fear, loss and anxiety you may be feeling still in the U.S. and elsewhere. We were there in March. It was a scary time. And the world in general? How crazy can it get?
But there was beauty knocking at my window. The butterfly was insistent, it kept circling around my window and I felt I must stop and try to get a photo. It seemed to say, "stop thinking about the bad stuff, there is beauty all around!" I got up from my chair and went outside with my phone. As you can see the lovely creature did not disappoint!
This beauty from nature filled my heart and that is what Maureen and I want to do with Eat the Tea. Nature, in all its beauty, inspiration, support and life-giving properties, is abundant in how it can heal us and keep us well. We want to share that with you through delicious, healing teas for the mind, body and spirit.
I hope you enjoy the photos (it was worth the 600 mosquito bites I got) and video.
