Big Beautiful World 21 — For the Love of Tea

It’s a big, beautiful world out there. Let’s stop trying to screw it up. 

Sometimes, simple is best.

Take this cup of hibiscus tea, warm and comforting on a cold November day. It’s in a favorite cup, one given to me by a dear friend. I generally drink tea on the couch, snuggled up next to my boyfriend, with the cats purring away on the cushions behind my head. If I were Danish I’d say this was an example of hygge (hoo-gah), “a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.”

Contentment or well-being in a heart-shaped tea bag: Check!

And who doesn’t want to feel more content and cozy?

Remember, it doesn’t have to be grand to qualify as big-beautiful. It just has to be.
