When I lived in China in the mid 80s I learned to drink plain hot water. For centuries the common people in China could not afford tea leaves, had no interest in coffee, and routinely boiled their drinking water to purify it. Most people drank hot water as a matter of habit, for comfort, and for good health. We always had thermoses filled with hot water available and my students and friends encouraged me to drink it plain and simple. It is amazingly soothing and cleansing to drink plain hot water. If you like to drink cold water you should try it hot.
I am participating in the Shutter Sister's One Word project for February. My word of focus is "rest". I am trying to visualize restfulness and take photos of whatever comes to mind this month. What do you see as "rest"?
I took photos all through 2007-09 for Project 365 to post at least one photo a day. Now that my oldest son is in the Air Force we are using this photo blog to share our adventures with him across the miles.
