breakfast with rose petal tea
It was foggy this morning. I have tea every day, but on a foggy morning it’s even more wonderful. I use PG tips, a pretty ordinary (British) blend, ‘corrected’ with dried petals from “Fragrant Cloud”, also shown.
Listening to Democracy Now, where Amy Goodman interviews Michael Moore who reminded me of the loud, mixed response at his Oscar-winning moment: the directors and actors cheering the solidarity of the documentary film makers ( and the anti-war speech one of them began to make until the band struck up), and the heavy booing from the upper level where all the sponsors and bankers sat!
Apparently, only a couple of minutes before, Moore got an 8 minute standing ovation–”bigger than Kurosawa’s”, an official told Mr. Moore.
The aftermath for Moore was death threats on all of his family, physical attacks, vilification in the New Yorker and NYT, house vandalized, and body guard budget. You gotta hope he’s allowed to live a long-enough life.
Back to frivoli-tea…I am going to produce a chapter this morning–the Fabulous Me book.
Powered by dried flowers, hot water and a couple of tired crumpets slathered with Lemon Crud. Oh, wait. Sun’s out.
Possible change in planz. Check out this Zippy ‘toon. Sums it up.
