Tea with Alice

Life is challenging and difficult in many ways. It is important to find a balance with work, rest and play. Some of us work out there in this world all the time, some of us not as much out there, but maybe in our homes with our children or our elderly parents, or both, and the list goes on… Maybe illness has been a factor in your life that you have had to overcome- may healing be yours this day…I pray…

What is your life like in the scheme of things? I only hope that light and grace will shine upon you now and always… and so… tea… and it’s healing and soothing properties is helping calm our fears, our sorrows, and drying our tears…

I believe that one way tea does this is in our classic movies. For example, in A Jane Austin movie or book, the characters sit in the drawing room and have their tea, or they sit outside in their gardens, or on the lawns of their estates. My goodness, to have tea like that, where it is celebrated most graciously…on a daily basis, it is a part of their lives, a very important part, where the day would not be complete without the afternoon tea.

Perhaps one of my favorites is Alice in Wonderland; a magical mysterious world embraces us for a short time-and we can sit back and sip our tea while we watch this classic. The world of tea indeed soothes our stress, builds our resistance, giving us hope for wellness of body, mind and spirit, and restoring hope in something or someone greater than ourselves.

So, enjoy the clip of the Mad Hatter’s tea party, as you sip your tea…

“There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep…”

“No room, no room”! They cried out as they saw Alice coming. “There’s plenty of room!” Said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large armchair at one end of the table.

From Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll.
