A Nice Cup of Tea!

Sometimes, when things move too fast..

Alternate text

..and everything is a blur

I put a full stop and leave my desk

..to make some tea

to get myself out of those gray cold glass chambers..

…to see the colors outside

for that whiff of fresh air..

..and the glorious evening sunlight

to look at the really long shadows..

…and little things on the floor

For the world out there..

..with people not too different

to watch the never ending traffic..

..which I could do forever

If only my cup was that tall..

One does not feel wiser, braver or more optimistic after drinking it. Anyone who has used that comforting phrase ‘a nice cup of tea’ invariably means Indian tea.

– George Orwell, A Nice Cup of Tea(1946)
