An Imaginary Voyage

"There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea." 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, Letters and Social Aims

"Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage." ~Catherine Douzel

I had a tea party not too long ago with my sisters, my nephews, and Jocko (the monkey).

Jocko is one of the best tea-mates. He sits in his quiet resolve with a very matter of fact look upon his face generally. Every so often we look over and his tea cup is empty... and for a fraction of a second we are awed, and then we wonder who drank Jocko's tea...
