Tea with the girls . . .

I haven't done this in a long time. Tea with the girls.

Come to think of it, I have never had the luxury of time to indulge in these tea things until now. How sad is that?

It was always an endless immersion in studies, full time work that knew no beginning or end and of course family which is a continuous cycle of events. That took a good number of years to sort out. By the fourth decade, as the nest emptied out, one finds time on ones hands, and that my friends is a new experience and a challenge.

Like all voids, it gets filled up with a variety of things, each taking its own course to sustain itself or be discontinued. Fitness activities like yoga, pilates, spinning, walking or gym work are highly sustainable if one has a penchant for what is called wellness these days. Meeting like-minded people is the next step in the process.
So while there are hen's parties and ladies teas, time spent with new found friends with similar interests can be most refreshing. Recent past has seen a couple of occasions where these tete a tete's have been both enlightening and special.

The array of topics covered from philosophy of life and living, to ancestral roots, to children, careers and relationships is a wonderful sharing experience when the mix is right. It is never too late to experience life in different forms.
