A little Friday treat, or: Inspiration might be where you do not expect to find it.

  • My Rakkasan tea order came in this week, and once again I can enjoy my favorite: Nam Việt Earl Grey made with wild black tea from a mountain in the Yên Bái Province and  bergamot oil from the Reggio di Calabria, Italy.
  • My friend and colleague from work called this morning for a ‘consult’ and we ended up spending an hour talking.  While I love the freedom to work on what I want to work on, I miss the camaraderie and mutual purpose of our work.  While talking about a research paper we are co-authoring, I mentioned my conflict with it, and she said “Then write that.”  Sometimes the simplest answer is the best answer.  We do not have to know the answer to ask the question.
  • While combing through the newspaper archives searching for confirmation of whether a school was actually constructed after the approval of a WPA allotment, I “found” the answer to even more crucial questions, generating the outline of another research analysis.
  • Yesterday, I noted the tiny petals of a new viola that has sprouted from the remains of the spent plant.
