I thought seriously about a T is for Three Cups of Tea post, but so much has already been written about the controversy involving Greg Mortenson, his books, and his non-profit organization that I couldn’t imagine adding anything significant. Mortenson spoke here in Northern Colorado, at Colorado State University, and this community raised a significant amount of money for his cause. It will be a real shame if that money was wasted when it could have been used right here at home at the Food Bank.
Then one of the kind visitors to my blog yesterday, L. G. Smith of Bards and Prophets, suggested I simply post a cup of tea as today’s contribution. I gave that some serious thought. After all, I’ve been chugging a lot of Earl Gray, green tea, and herbal teas throughout this cold and bronchitis attack. But then, finding a free picture of a cup of tea (or taking one and uploading and cropping and resizing) seemed like a lot of effort for someone who mostly wanted to take another nap. Instead, I’ll refer you to this great website, Teavana: Tea for Beginners.
I could also send you to this You Tube recording of Ninet Tayeb singing Elliott Smith’s Taking the Easy Way Out. But Smith had a pretty sad life and an unfortunate end, so it seemed too depressing a subject for good A to Z Challenge post. Day Tripper from the Beatles works better, “Got a good reason for taking the easy way out.”
That’s the best I can do for now. It’s time for another cup of tea, a new supply of tissues and a couple of cough drops.
