Tea makes me feel safe. It helps me write, it keeps me awake past
8:30 when we have company, it soothes my aches when I feel defeated. I carry tea in my purse when we travel to alleviate homesickness,
and generous friends have brought me so much tea that it fills a chest
of drawers in our entryway.
See you in Austin. Oh, and if you see that I've consumed more than five Shiner Bocks in one sitting, please close my tab.
