“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the earth revolves…slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh 

Some things in this life, really don’t need much further explanation.

And yet, sometimes it takes life stopping us dead in our tracks for us to shut off our minds and finally listen.

Never let anyone or anything hinder you from seeing the fullest beauty of this one single moment.

And, don’t wait on something stopping you dead in your tracks for you to find the time to appreciate the brilliance of these quickly passing moments.

About Tara Lemieux

Tara Lemieux is a mindful wanderer, and faithful stargazer. Although she often appears to be listening with great care, rest assured she is most certainly forever lost in thought. She is an ardent explorer and lover of finding things previously undiscovered or at the very least mostly not-uncovered. When she’s not writing, you can find her walking in the woods and sometimes changing the way we look at things, one simple moment at a time. If after all of this, you still wish to seek Tara out, you can contact her at www.taralemieux.com, OR read her SUPER-AMAZING DAILY blog or, take one second to "LIKE" her on Facebook at Tara's Facebook Page. Or email her directly at tara@taralemieux.com. All roads will lead to one home, and rest assured she (and Nudnick, the wonder dog) would LOVE to hear from you.
