Very warm welcome to this LIFE ENRICHING BLOG,
I hope you too like the lovely photo, which I obtained from one of my Facebook friends. I must thank her so much for her kindness in allowing me to display it in my blog for your viewing pleasure.
Tell me what you could see from the above photo. You may compare the wording from other images at the side bars of my blog. I am sure that the above photo conveys many meanings to you. For those who understand Mandarin, most likely recognise its meaning as it is from the word, TEA, in Mandarin character. Now, you know the reason behind why I displayed the lovely photo of 'TEA" in this blog. Some of you may well be aware that the conventional Chinese characters are in the pictorial form.
In this connection, may someone help me to explain how and why this word was first created in this manner? Then it may help you to see why the creator of the piece of art uses two little white flowers at the top of the word? Why the roof, just below the two flowers, is in green? What pink and brown colours mean here?
By now, what I can say for sure is that we need some imagination to figure out its true meaning. Please share with us what you see there. Do not worry because there is no right answer to it. Who dare to say you are wrong to interpret it in the way you see it. Just a clue for someone who has not see anything from it, what you need to do is stare at it for long and slowly and surely, the picture will then appear by itself.
To truly enjoy good brewed tea, you must be very patient. Just like seeing the above picture. At the end of the day, the tea must give you a pure, bitter and sweet taste. Its pureness must be preserved and you need the skill to brew it. If you have not, do not worry. Practise, practise and practise will make you perfect. It is just like any trade.
With this lovely piece of art, I am pretty sure it will enrich our lives. Furthermore, how would you feel if you are being served with good quality tea right now. And you have the time to savour it. If it really suits your taste, then may I invite you to join us in this tea blogsphere. Let us work together to bring happiness and enrich lives through tea to the people at large, so as to make our lives more meaningful. This is the basic function of having tea together. Only through sharing, we can make it prosper.
Thanks and seeing you again.
