Prepareing for Spring

 As most of you know by now I have been studying tea for quite some time now. With my full lessons (George Brown program and  Chanoyu lessons) I have come to the point where I want to invite my followers or anyone else for that matter to join me for a cup of tea (Or a few).
     By taking these Chanoyu lessons I hope to come up with a date(s) and time(s) I will serve tea to whom ever may wish for a cup. Whether this takes place at High Park at the peak of Cherry Bloosom Viewing or on the busy streets, I am still working out. The meanings behind each location and the tools I will use need much thought. Will I dress in Kimono, my usual attire or perhaps "change" to something else? Questions questions questions.  Much learning on my part as an artist as I have only done Performance art a few times. Once I wore my modern kimono down town to class (it was black with an IPod design on it) and the other was cosplaying as my ego for a large school project.
   Anyhow I just wanted to put that out there for people to look forward to.  On a side note I plan on sending out postcards for Christmas/New Years, if anyone wants to be on my mailing list before I get any of these printed feel free to e-mail me. Till latter~


  1. Congratulation.Chanoyu is very impress and interesting. You can find peace and harmony in it. About the uniform, it's depend on the season. At Indonesia, with mostly hot (look like summer), we use Yukata, the thin kind of Kimono.
    The first time I learn is how to walk and sitting with Seiza Style. It's really hurt my leg. Seiza sitting style is the hardest way to learn for me.

  2. Thank you. I am very excited. Seiza is very hard on my knees but I do enjoy it when preparing tea.

  3. Hai, today I'm going to practise Ryurei. It's kind of Chanoyu, but without tatami. It's mean not neccessary sitting with seiza style :) All the tea utensil and tea preparation put on the special table.

  4. Ryurei sounds easier on the knees. lol.
